April Dawn Board reported to the doctor's office in Santa Clarita, CA. Reports of high blood pressure and risk of seizure from priaclampsia led to immediate inducement of labor at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.
So the whole fam (Mom, Dad, Hannah, Leanna, Nathan F. and I) rushed to SC to join Darren and April. Soon after we arrived, two surprise guests joined us. April's mom and sister drove down from northern CA to be with her. After many hours of anxious waiting, Emma Grace Board was born on Saturday morning, at 1:53 AM to an awesome set of parents. Weighing in at 7 lb 12 oz, 20" long and lots of dark hair, we are all amazed at this miracle of life God has brought into our family. God is so good to bless us, and especially Darren and April with a beautiful little girl. I'm on the road, away from my computer, so all of these images are straight out of the camera.
