Welcome Christin Arielle!

A first look at our precious new little one . . . what a miracle! Christin came out fully alert, crying and moving all around (and very cheesy!).



Moments after her birth.


The proud papa!
Here she's had her first meal; with a full tummy and her head against my heart, it looks like all is right with the world!

She's here! PTL!
I'm home (back at the hotel) from the hospital and am feeling great, and Christin is already sleeping and eating well. She's a Wind--she caught on to the eating thing right away! We're now making preparations to return home; we have train tickets to return to our city for Thursday. Stay tuned for the birth story--though we had a few dicey moments, the Lord was faithful and worked out his perfect plan in such wonderful ways. Thanks again to everyone for your thoughts and prayers!

Congratulations! Rachel, how on earth do you look so good after giving birth to a 10 lb baby? She was born on Chris's birthday AND she has a Chris-like name (I know you didn't plan that, but it'll still make him feel good). Good to meet her. XOXO Sarah
