On Thursday morning, 12:31 a.m., Xavia Alice Finnern was brought into this world at 7lbs 12oz and 20.5 inches (by the way she was 3 weeks early and would have been the size of a truck if going full term!).
I can not even explain how one can see a glimpse of the original creation when you first lay eyes on your child. Here is a child that was not part of our world 10 months ago and now is a manifestation of the oneness of my wife and I. She is just amazing and as beautiful as her mother.
Our excitement and emotions are sky high as we feel that this will be our last child (I think I have an appointment to the "vet). It has been an amazing journey starting in 2005 and comes to fruition with the tiny hands and feet of Xavia. It brings to light the joys that the Lord reveals to us and the transitions we all need to make. Not only are the transitions emotional, but they are a healthy manner by which God prepares us for the next stage.
Please pray for Xavia as we eagerly await her arrival into Christ's kingdom in August and our family for strength to raise our children in Christ.
