Meeting Jack….

Some mornings don’t start with a leisurely cup of tea in the quiet of the house….

But rather start with going into labour and then into the operating theatre!

Friday, 17th August 2012 at 10.10am – Jack Archer Harding entered the world joyfully into Dan and I’s arms…He weighed 8 pounds,1o ounces (3.920kg) and 56cm long.

We were relieved…


and couldn’t wait to introduce him to his brothers….

Jack’s first outfit :)

We are thankful to God for blessing us with Jack – God’s gracious gift to us and reminded by his delivery time 10:10am of Jesus’precious words,

John 10:10
“I have come that they may have LIFE and have it to the full…”

We are settling in at home and I’m recovering and thankful for our “new little prince”…

Love Martine
