Announcing: A new family member!

 

Thursday evening, August 22nd at 8:47pm, Eva Rose Whitman came into the world!

All of us at the hospitalWe thank the Lord for this beautiful blessing that God has given us.  She weighed 3 kilograms and was 51 centimeters long at birth. (The use of metric is intentional, just to give you a hard time!)

We have been blessed to have my (Jon) parents helping out with Noah, and today Melodee’s parents arrived from Florida!

Thank you for sharing in this special moment in our life through your prayers and for the many of you who have been inquiring: “Is she here yet?”

The delivery went extremely well, and Melodee feels great!  On top of that we had the privilege of sharing Christ twice while we were in the hospital — with Melodee’s roomate  and an Indian young man whose younger sister  attends our church. We felt God’s hand in so many ways.    God is at work!

Jon and the kidsNow we are all back home, enjoying the love of our brothers and sisters in Christ who have been providing meals and cleaning our house for us.

Noah seems to be adjusting well to having a baby sister, though he is not sure what to do with her crying.  She has a voracious appetite and once in a while even lets us sleep.

Thank you for your prayers. We truly feel like the richest people on earth.
