Welcoming ... Jesse William!!

All thanks and praise be to our blessed Heavenly Father, who has given to us a wondrous gift, another boy! Jesse (7 lbs, 12 oz.) was born around 5:30 PM, on April 28, 2008 DV a new brother to Phillip.

He came into the world quickly and dangerously. He was born after 45 minutes in the hospital, making for about 3 hours of labor in all. He made his entrance, however, with his umbilical cord around his neck, cutting off all circulation. In God's glorious grace, the midwives were able to reach in and cut the cord. Even though the baby's heartbeat dipped way down and he didn't breathe for a few minutes, God enabled him to quickly recover with vigor and strength!

Praise God, baby and mother are both doing well! Please join us in thanking Him that His mercies endure forever!

"For Jehovah is good; his lovingkindness endures forever,
and his faithfulness unto all generations." Psalm 100:5
