I am a grand-uncle
« on: February 22, 2010, 08:43:44 AM »
Earlier this morning, my niece, Olesya (a daughter of my wife's sister), gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl. The parents and other relatives are still debating about the name.:)

Olesya and her husband, Oleksij, live in Luts'k, northwestern Ukraine.

Congratulations!

Many happy years to the little one.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Thank you all! The parents and other relatives are still deliberating, but it looks like the name will be Alexandra (like my wife's).
