Welcome to this world, baby Christina Paul

Christina Paul 1
Cradling little 5lb 6oz baby Christina Paul in my arms, only hours after her arrival into this world, was such a vivid reminder that life is both fragile and precious and should never be taken for granted. Despite her embilical cord being wrapped around her tiny neck three times, creating a worrisome heart rate shortly before her arrival, arrive she did, letting out a healthy cry to announce her presence on planet earth.
For Carol and I to be invited to share this moment of new life with our very special friends Princy and Binu, knowing that they named their precious baby after our daughter Christina made this moment all the more special.
Life is fragile and precious, such a beautiful gift.
The following blog posts are from last January when I traveled to Chennai, India to tell my daughter Christina’s Compassion story. Binu and Princy helped me prepare for that trip, inviting me to stay with his family while there. I fell in love with the Paul family in southern India and their gracious hospitality and these posts tell that story.
