Our son was baptized today. Because of his recent hospitalization for respiratory failure we had to go with a pouring method rather than dunking. But it is still a valid baptism and I can understand why we had to forgo dunking the boy.
I wanted him baptized sooner rather than later, so pouring was a good option. I didn't think that it was worth delaying his reception into the church just so he could be fully immersed.
A week ago he was just being taken off the ventilator to try his lungs on room air, so being baptized is a pretty big improvement from this time last week!
Thank you to all those that prayed for us. I really do appreciate it.
