Another Precious Gift from God








Yesterday, Stephen David officially became a part of our family, as we signed adoption papers. He was born on January 20th, ten weeks early, so he is still needing extra care at the hospital. Please pray for his physical, cognitive, and spiritual growth as we wait for him to be strong enough to come into our home. :)

Makana is beside herself, wondering why her baby brother cannot be strong enough to sleep at home. Thankfully, Grandma is here to spend lots of time with her as I go to the hospital for his feedings. He needs to gain stamina to eat on his own. Right now, he prefers sleeping and conserving his energy to using up calories to gain calories to eat. That is a bit of information for a two year-old to comprehend. :)

Stephen is good at gripping our pinkies; the first picture is one with him holding onto Dave's, and he didn't want to let go. :)

How wonderful! Congrats! He's just gorgeous--and so tiny. I'm assuming it's pronounced "steven" not "stefan" :-) Will be praying for his growth and health.
