i wasnt supposed to continue this 2nd baby coz i just gave birth thru CS a year earlier.. i took lots of abortive pills and i even had chicken pox and chronic UTI which can both affect me and my baby badly.. i really thought something bad will happen to my baby boy but when he came out- he is the most beautiful thing ive ever seen. its truly a miracle. thank u God

My Gift
written by Charlene, February 18, 2008
My husband and I went to visit his grandmother 4.5 years ago and on that day she asked me when will we have a baby I told her we were not ready financialy she told me she would help, sadly she passed away that day. I was on the pill for years and 1 year after her death I found out I was preggies. She was the most wonderful person I have ever met in my life and she was so close to God in her life. I still think she pulled a few strings where she is and today smiling down on us as we have the most beautiful son whom we named Nathan he is our little gift from God. I think a person should name a baby not only on meaning and the name, but that has a story behind.

We have a 3yo Nathan. I think it's a great alternative to the more popular Ethan (which had been our first choice until 3 people we knew decided to name their baby's Ethan).

We also have a Jacob, Benjamin, and an upcoming Caleb (I love hearing sibling name combos!).

My Nathan

My Nathan James is 12, I named him "Nathan" because it was the first name my husband and I agreed on! But he is a gift from God, born 12/29!

My husband and I are choosing this name if we have a baby boy because we miscarried the first time I believe that the baby we lost asked God to grant us a child and after going through infertility we finally got pregnant and this is truely a miracle baby from God!

My second son is Nathan. I miscarried his twin in my 1st trimester. The fact that I still had him is incredible...unless you know him. He's pretty tenacious. His brothers are Joshua and Caleb.
Defiantly a Gift

My husband and I tried to have a child for 4 years and finally had our first son Nathan :) I truly believe he is my gift from God. I have three amazing, gorgeous sons now, Nathan Jacob Harrison, Hayden Ethan Harrison, and Tristan Daniel Harrison.
