BREAKING NEWS. Hugo Robert McNeill born an hour ago 712pm 13 May. 3.95kg 51cm. Mother and child healthy. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!!

SUNDAY Midday Update: It’s hard to describe the excitement of meeting our child. He’s been with us for nine months, gender unknown… but now to meet him face-to-face is a great joy.

Mandy and Hugo are staying at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Camperdown. Visiting hours are 2pm to 8pm. We expect to be home on Monday.

This morning Liana, Jemimah and Oscar visited the three of us, so that for the first time, all six of us were together. A great joy! God is very good.

The most amazing thing was walking into The Birth Centre at RPA with only two people, and walking out with three. What a joy.

Birth is never a safe exercise, and so we are thankful to our wonderful God for the safe delivery of our child.

God is good, hey?
