Bronwyn Anna Hicks
Born February 19, 2010, 11:51pm
7 lbs 5 oz, 20.5 inches
Our joy is here! We hit the hospital at about 4pm. Abby slowly progressed from 4 to 6 cm and then stalled for a long while. We spent time hanging out, and we were beginning to think her birthday would fall on 2/20. She squeaked in at the last minute. All of a sudden we were calling in the team, and after two quick pushes, Bronwyn was here! She’s beautiful, completely healthy, alert, and nursing really well. She doesn’t necessarily look like any of the other boys when they were born. She has strawberry blonde hair (which is how Brody started) and a cute, tiny nose. Thank you all for your prayers in anticipation of her coming!
Bronwyn is a Welsh/Gaelic name, meaning “pure/fair.” Anna (we had a last minute change this morning…God allowed us to be too tired to send this email last night, and we both woke up uneasy about her alternate middle name!) is after the prophetess told about in Luke 2:36-38. She was a devout woman of God: “She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying.” Anna’s closeness to God was evidenced by her ability to look at Jesus as an infant and know that He was Messiah, Savior of the world. Our prayer for Bronwyn Anna is that she grows to understand that all her purity and beauty comes from knowing and being known by Christ Jesus.
We’re so excited to have a little girl! Thank God!
Zac & Abby
