Introducing Shav

Newly born...loved for a long time...
His fingers, gripping the nurse's...
His foot, still showing the residue of the ink used to make his footprints...
It's been a day of strong emotions...
We are so blessed...
We welcome you, Shav--to the world, to our family, to the special destiny that God has planned for you. We love you deeply already...

We are so happy for you and you will be in our continous prayers!! One quick question for you what does Shav mean because Josiah told us it's Hebrew?

Love the pictures. And by the way, yesterday was also Adam's birthday...so a mighty good day to be born. It's also my grandfather's birthday. He just turned 90 something, but for his whole life for some reason he thought his b'day was the 21st...

I hope you're able to get some rest. I know you're loving this great little guy being on the outside!
