An Answered Prayer

Several months ago, I asked all of you to keep my brother and his wife in prayer. She was around 5ish months pregnant and began having contractions. Up until a few weeks ago she was kept on bed rest. Every day the doctors were concerned that little Addie would arrive. So week by week we kept tabs on how she was developing and prayed fervently that the baby would be healthy.

Today, at 12pm, Adelynn Grace Sommers was born. 7 lbs. 11 oz., and 20 1/2 inches long, complete with 5 fingers, 5 toes, and little fat rolls on her legs. I'm already pretty crazy about her. Praise the Lord!!!

Gretta looked exhausted and nauseous, but completely in love, and Jon looked terrified and excited all at the same time.

Here are some pictures for you all to enjoy.
