Introducing...

We are pleased to introduce you to our newest family member, Liam Pierce Fletcher, born today at 7:57am. He is 19 3/4 inches long and weighs 7 lbs and 3 oz.

Thankfully, Stephanie and Liam are doing well. Though quite sore from a c-section, Stephanie has been able to rest a decent amount thanks to a wonderful cocktail of pain meds. Liam, though, has been dealing with some respiratory difficulties, expected at only 37 weeks, due to fluid on his lungs. His breathing is somewhat labored at times but his doc anticipates all this will iron itself out in short time.

So many of you know and have followed our story over the past year. Stephanie and I want to thank you for journeying with us to this point and for celebrating the arrival of our son. Your prayers and many encouraging words have been cherished; and, we hope you feel the excitement we feel in Liam's birth after our past loss and rocky months of pregnancy. We are so grateful to God for this gift of life.

Liam is amazingly beautiful. I am looking at him through tears of joy. I know this journey has felt long and I have felt that with you. I have loved those brief moments that we connected during this pregnancy...seeing and touching that precious belly and seeing the light in Stephanie's eyes. This birth is full of hope and joy. Can't wait to hold that beautiful baby.
