Welcome to the World Baby Jack!

Baby Jack was welcomed into the world today at 5:40pm weighing in at 7lb 7oz, 19 1/2 inches long. Everyone is healthy and happy. Its 2am and I am currently "sleeping" in the worlds most uncomfortable chair right by the birthmom. How many people can say that? What an honor.
Tomorrow at 6pm we can sign documents, until then I just can't rest. Maybe it's the chair, maybe it's the machines beeping, maybe it's the hourly entry of nurses and medical staff. Nope, pretty sure it's my nerves. Please say a prayer for us, we are a bundle of nerves. It's funny how 2 adoptions can have 2 entirely different sets of worries and emotions. I am feeling a little out of sorts. Well, a lot out of sorts. It's 2am. Did I mention that? Oh, and he's perfect, absolutely perfect.

  10. Amazing. Prayers for all involved:

    Lord, be with Jack as he grows and develops even today. Be with Charlie as he gets accustom to sharing mom and dad with a new little guy. Also, be with Jack's birthmom/family...give comfort and peace knowing that the decision to make an adoption plan for Jack is the best one. Give Mama and Papa rest, but also give them time to pray over their new little one, to enjoy every moment, and to be a light to those around them.

    Thank you that you set the lonely in families and that you will never leave us or forsake us. Any of us.

    In Jesus Name,
    Amen

    Be blessed today! And each day. We'll continue to pray for your family!
