Hello from the hospital!!!!! This is Daddy providing a brief update on today's activities...

Lily Grace was born on 12/12/08 at 10:27am coming in at 17in. and a weight of 5lbs 8oz. Her apgar was 8. The surgery went well despite the waterfalls flowing into my mask. Mommy and I have been enjoying the life of our beautiful baby girl who as I write this has been with us for 12 hours. The day was spent with our family and several close friends who laughed, cried, hugged, prayed, and sang with us (Oh, and captured the day with over 500 pictures). The doctors and nurses have been so loving and caring. We simply thank God for his grace, our forever treasured moments with Lily, and the endless support of love and prayers throughout the globe.

Please continue to pray for strength, peace, and comfort as Lily has had a couple seizures.

Craig (and Jessica), thanks for the update. I was thinking of the 4 of you all day today and waiting. You have a strong little girl and can't wait to hear about all the precious moments, and hours you are having with Lily and continue to have as I write this. I'm sorry about her seizures. :( Sending you some hugs.....I know you will have a long night ahead of you and pray that you have strength and peace during these upcoming hours.
