A blessing from above

Daniel is now three weeks old.

Whenever I look at my little prince, I just can’t believe that I have a second child. Being a mom to a newborn again is so surreal.


“Mommy, now you have two children.” Dot will exclaimed with excitement and delight several timesĀ during the day. She is drumming into my heart that I’m now a mother of two.

More than five year ago, we decided that we would only have oneĀ child after Dot is born. It was not because we don’t like children or due to financial situation. We found out that there is probability that we may pass on our bad genes to our next generation, hindering us from trying for another child.

Human reasoning or maybe it’s fear that leads us to our logical decision. However, God has a better plan. Prayers, friends, situations, confirmation led us to try again for another child.


He blesses us with Daniel according to the prophecy that we received more than two years ago.

When I look at my healthy little boy, I thank Him who gives us the faith and courage to try again despite our fears and apprehension.

Daniel, our blessing from above.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. – James 1:17
