We are incredibly thankful for the many prayers and kind words you've sent our way in the last while. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to post pictures of our newest little blessing. (You've all been very patient!) God heard and answered all of our prayers for a safe and natural delivery and a healthy baby boy. He was born April 2nd at 1:21 in the morning after really only a few hours of hard work. We were able to come home with him that evening and have been adjusting to life with a newborn and enjoying these days with him very much. I'll write more about his birth when I have a chance, but wanted to share some pictures of our baby. We are still deciding on middle names, but have given him the first name Raphael, which means "God has healed" in Hebrew.

They were delighted as you can see!
Peregrine, Alethea, and Raphael on his first day!
The waiting and the work were well worth the reward!

Raphael, first day. (And we were totally smitten!)
Look at those chubby cheeks! At 8 lbs 4 oz he was our biggest baby yet!
A few days later, already changing.

One Week- where does the time go?

These little feet will take you big places someday, tiny one!
Again, we thank you so much for your prayers and for sharing in our rejoicing. I'll try to post more soon!
Rebeca, for us all
