New arrival expected today
« on: April 13, 2004, 01:44:55 AM »
Christ is Risen!

Dear all,

I don't expect Oblio will have much opportunity to get online today as he and his wife Alexandra are expecting the arrival of their first child (a little girl who will be named Anna after the Grandmother of our Lord :)).

Please keep them in your prayers for a safe delivery on this blessed day.

John.

May Oblio, Alexandra and "Anna" be well and blessed .

Christos Anesti!  Christ is Risen!

Not wanting to steal Oblio's thunder, but since he hasn't posted over here yet...

Anna Suzanne Wilcox was born on Monday evening (April 12)

Mother and daughter (and dad) are all reported to be doing well :) and Oblio is understandably not spending much time at the computer ;D

I know.  He's probably way too busy changing diapers to spend time on the computer.  May God grant Anna many, many, many years.

Take it from me (three children) there's nothing "acquired" about it.  It's an in-born talent from the start.

Many congratulations and Good wishes for the New One and her (tired but happy) parents!
