A father’s tale for his son

At 7:25 on February 26th, 2014 a son was born to Joseph MacLean and Sem Sirnourn at the Sorphea Maternity Hospital in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Close upAfter a long and somewhat difficult time for Nourn (prounced Newen) the wee boy was born – weighing in at 3500 grams. While the wonderfully attentive, kind and really professional support team (yes, team) worked on Nourn to close off the proceedings I was handed my first son and for the next hour I held him in my arms, thanked the heavens and all the divinities I could name for a hale and hearty son and introduced myself to my first born.



Here are some more photos from that magic first day:

In Cambodia they put a touque and mittens on a newborn. I love this as being a Canadian I immediately thought – well, touque and mittens – well he’s Canadian already!!

  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out

  2. Very good website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover
    the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other experienced people that share the same interest.
