Niki and I just found out that she is pregnant!

I humbly (wow, imagine that!) ask that you remember her and our child in your prayers.

Thank you

Thank you all, my friends!

how many children is this?

This will be #3 for me. I have 2 children (20 and 17) from a prior marriage before I became Orthodox. This will be the FIRST for Niki and I.

MANY YEARS+CONGRADUALTIONS
PS. Tom-Spyridon is a very nice name  Grin

Yes it is, but if it is a boy we will name him Nikos (after Niki's father since he had no sons)

If it is a girl we will name her Sophia Sotaria (after Niki's mother and grandmother)

True, Spiro, but being in Maryland, it might lead to people asking if the child was named after a past governor....Spiro T. Agnew...  Grin

Just showiong my age again.

So are you going to let us know the projected Due Date, Tom?
