Miracle – noun- a remarkable event or development that brings very welcome consequences
Miracle came into the world in the early hours of this morning – a beautiful happy and healthy baby girl born to our Bridget Bardot. As the gentle ewe licked at her baby and tenderly guided her to a teat, we realised we had truly witnessed a miracle. Bridget not only survived the terrible fiery inferno that raged across Willowmavin earlier this year as part of the worst bushfire to hit Victoria since Black Saturday, but she was then to sustain a horrifically broken leg not long thereafter. Whilst a bullet could have claimed her life, as is often the prescription meted out to ‘farm’ animals with such an injury, a kind heart stepped in and threw Bridget her lifeline, making the call to Edgar’s Mission. Over the weeks as we have nursed Bridget’s broken leg, the farmer’s wife’s words rang in our ears, “She may be pregnant too.” And so, we have acted accordingly. At 1am this morning those words were confirmed and what else could we call this tiny bundle of joy but our own Little Miracle.
Miracle – noun- a remarkable event or development that brings very welcome consequences, a tiny little lamb and a reason for hope!
