Baby Nathan is Here!


This is just a short FYI post to announce that the baby is now here. Nathan Andrew was born at 11:13 on Sunday night (2/24/08). He was 6 lb 5 oz and 18.5 inches long. The doctors examined him and found that his lungs are fine, color is fine, and there is no sign of Downs Syndrome. We are relieved and thankful to Almighty God for this deliverance. It has been a long pregnancy and one filled with many tears and prayers. But now it is over and God's grace has prevailed. Praise His name for His ways are wonderful and blessed.

We thank everyone for your prayers on our behalf. We believe that prayer changes things and we are truly thankful for everyone that remembered us in prayer. We thank God for your faithfulness.

This post is being written in the hospital using dial-up service. Needless to say, we will not attempt to post pictures until we get to a faster connection. More will be posted soon.

Jay - for Amber
