Leah breathed a sigh of relief when the sound of a baby crying filled the room. She looked up toward Heaven and said a quick prayer of thanks. She watched as Hannah washed the infant and wrapped the baby in a blanket. When Hannah finally turned around all Leah could see of the baby was the top of its head.
"Ya got a son, Leah," Hannah happily told her. She carefully gave the crying child to Leah.
Leah eagerly took her son from Hannah and held him close. "Heath Morgan Thomson," Barkley she thinks to herself. It broke her heart that her son couldn't carry his fathers name, but she could not bring herself to tell Tom and risk tearing his family apart. No, she wouldn't think about that now. The only thing that mattered now was Heath. Her baby, Toms son. She new that it would hard raising a son without a father, but prayed that she would be a good mother and that she could provide him with all the love that he needed.
Leah continued to admire her son and finely he began crying again, telling her that he was hungry. She stroked her fingers across the small amount of blond hair. He was beautiful and once gain she thanked God for blessing her with a son.
Heath was six months old when Leah picked him up and felt that her son was running a fever. She quickly took him to Hannah's house. She knocked on the door, but didn't wait for an answer before going inside.
"Hannah! Hannah, Heath is sick!" Leah quickly told.
"Calm down, Leah," Hannah shook her head at the young women. "I'm sure he's fine. Let me see him."
Leah carefully passed her son to Hannah and watch as the old women felt his head.
The baby was just a little warm, but Hannah wasn't worried. "Just keep him cool. I'm sure he'll be jus' fine by tomorra'."
"Are you sure?" Leah was still concerned.
"Positive," Hannah assured her. "Jus' keep him cool."
"Alright," she nodded her head and took Heath from Hannah. She hurried home and kept Heath as cool as possible.
Hannah couldn't help, but laugh a little. Leah worried so much, but Heath was her first child and Hannah couldn't blame her for worrying.
