Missionary Kid's are a tough breed. They really have to be.
Well, one of their number, has now stepped to the head of the game. And endured an excruciating episode.
A 64 hour episode to be exact.
My friend, Laura, was in LABOR for 64 hours.
I've had four and I wasn't in labor that long combined...I hope that doesn't make Laura want to punch me. But you know what, if punching me would relieve some pent up frustration for her...I'd gladly take the hit. (Better yet, hit Rusty. He's a big man. He can take it! Go ahead!)
Bless you, friend. You have truly fought a huge battle and I am proud of you.
And bless sweet Alexander (brilliant parents to pick a name such as that!).
We are so thankful he is here and that you are both safe.
(Laura and Rusty currently live and serve in Japan. Laura was born and raised in Kenya.)
