Welcome to our family, Shiloh Faith Elara!

I will be happy to post some more details about our little one's birth soon (the hospital has WiFi!). In the mean time, here are some pictures for your enjoyment. The birth was wonderful, both Shiloh and I are doing very, very, very well. My heart is full to overflowing - how can I even being to express the love, joy, and adoration I have for my Lord? I am so abundantly blessed. I want to be sure to note that I have a wonderful, supportive, amazing husband who enables me to be all that I am and more. I am thankful for such a man. And this sums everything up better than I ever could with a whole book of words :

Lam. 3:23 ".....great is Your faithfulness."

Hi there Katie,
You probably don't remember me- I met you at Beyond the Song a couple years back, but I'm friends with Sarah O and she told me about the baby! (I'm from Covenant Life, and getting to know Hannah Tallo whom I hear was going to be at your birth as well.) Anyway, I just wanted to say congratulations and you have a beautiful family! Get better fast. :-)
