Babies: A perfect gift from the Father

How I love my baby!!!  We are so blessed with such a good boy in our lives.  Ephraim is such a joy in my life.  These tender moments make it all worth it.  He is our seventh child.  Often times I think about the "what if" we had stopped having children after one, two, or even the sixth.  No little baby Ephraim to look at, smile, and even laugh with.
