There’s nothing like looking into the eyes of a newborn child. Amongst all the gloom and worry about the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to bring you the good news of these happy, healthy little miracles that two local families welcomed into the world this past week.
The families stated it was both a joyous and frightening experience.
Chris and Emily McGrew would like to announce the arrival of their twin daughters Tinelle Amani 5 lbs 6 oz at 12:50 pm and Tegan Raine 5 lbs 4 oz at 12:56 pm on Thursday, March 19, 2020. Big sister Niyeli Nichelle awaiting their arrival home as well as Grandparents Deodulo (Yoyo) and Sabrina Guerra of Devine and Marshall and Marsha Cowell of El Paso. Also Grant Grandpa Bill Sherry of Devine. We are blessed.
“Now we will bring them home and quarantine,” said grandmother Sabrina Guerra. “Having a baby is such a joyous experience and having twins is extraordinary, but at this time it is frightening. We have so much love and so much fear, we just have to put it all in God’s hands and let it go.”
It’s A Boy!
Jason and Eva Smith would like to announce the arrival of their little man, Archer Evander Smith, born March 18, 2020 at 9:17 am, at 8 lbs 13 oz and 20 inches long in San Antonio at University Hospital. Big brothers Hunter 6 years of age, Gunner 4 years of age, and Fisher 2 years of age are also thrilled.
“Having a baby during quarantine has not been easy especially since we have had an extended stay in our hospital and only one visitor was allowed in a 24 hour period. It made it a little tough but we survived with lots of prayers and help from our friends and family. We completely understand and appreciate that it’s all for our safety and the safety of others,” said mom Eva Smith.
“When we arrive home, hopefully sooner than later, we will be able to find things we need as we go. With four little ones, we try to have on hand what we need for them, but we do not stock up. We have our faith and know God will continue to watch over us. He tells us in Phil. 4:6 ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God,’” Smith added.
