At last...the news you've been waiting for!

Joshua Thomas was born July 14th at 1:30 am. He was a beautiful 9 lbs, 10 oz. and has bright red hair. He ended up coming via emergency c-section. Completely not in our plans, of course, but we are overwhelmed with thankfulness at God's protection and provision through the whole birth. I will post the whole (LONG!) birth story later, in the next day or two. And, I'll get these photos loaded too. I promise. I just didn't want to leave you hanging any longer!

Oooh! Congrats!! I have lost count of how many times I have checked your blog to see if there were updates! Having experienced an emergency c-section myself, I know how much it stinks to go through one after so hoping for natural birth. I am just thankful that you can honestly say you tried everything you could do. And now a new baby boy! I can't wait to see pics!
