welcome, sweet baby!


Elijah Grey Singer
born 12.27.08 @ 1:27pm
6lbs 13oz strong
21in long

handsomest baby boy!


it was 5:30am saturday the 27th when we received the text. we arrived a the hospital a little later to sit and wait with the birthmother as she labored. her labor was simple and nearly pain free! she was fully dilated by 12:45 pm. the dr. was planning to let her rest an hour or so before he made her begin to push. the birthmother complained of strong pains, so the dr. checked her...the baby's head was beginning to come out! the dr. had her push...once...and out came our little boy, elijah grey! amazing miracle!

we were able to be with him right away...even through most of the night! they let him leave to come home with us the very next day, only 24hrs after his birth. we are so thrilled and in awe of the goodness of our LORD!

please pray with us as we work and wait towards the finalization of this adoption process!
