“When I was tearing the amniotic sack off, I could tell,” said Kevin with a grin.
While delivering baby Judah in the van was not part of the couple’s plan, they said they had educated themselves about the birthing process, but never imagined they would put into use what they learned from them.
“It was amazing. I never felt nervous. There was this peace over me. The Lord provided what I needed when I needed it,” said Kevin, who admitted that his adrenaline rush was wearing off by the time the couple arrived at the hospital.
“Kevin may not have a degree in obstetrics, but in that moment of complete chaos, his inner calm assurance that God is faithful to provide kept me grounded,” said Amanda.
“I knew what God had done before through this man and I was completely assured that God would do it again.”
Amanda said she and Kevin had already selected the name Judah before their son entered the world but his name is definitely fitting.
“I had written in my prayer journal on Feb. 6, ‘The name Judah means ‘praise’ in Hebrew. I am so very much anticipating meeting our sweet Judah Nicholas very soon. Lord, I do praise you for his sweet life and I believe that his life will bring You praise.’ Through the circumstances surrounding Judah’s birth God completely provided and he is worthy of praise.”
