Wife and new baby
« on: July 02, 2012, 07:51:11 PM »
My wife gave birth to our first son today. He weighs 8 lbs, 15 ozs and is 21 inches long. We don't have a name yet.

My wife went through a C-section to have him and though she is now finally able to rest comfortably, there are some potential issues.  Prayers for both, please.

Wow! Congratulations DAD!  ;D  Glory be to God! 

May the Lord grant quick recovery and good health for Mom.

Many years!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Wonderful, so happy for you, congratulations.

Lord have mercy on them both.
