Meet Jedidiah Jack Young

 "Lo, children are a heritage from the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is His reward." 
We are rewarded again!  Jedidiah Jack Young was born the 10th of July, about 8:30 AM to James and Gloria Young, and also to us (in a sense) the pleased aunt and uncle! 

 Just six days before, James and Gloria's church threw a shower for the Gloria, stating the obvious. 

Gloria did a great job on this home delivery, laboring off and on all night alone, before telling James around 4 AM that she thought the big day was here!  They called us around 5:00 and we rushed over (5 houses down the street)  in great excitement.
 The other kids were whisked away at the crucial moment, to our house, but in the evening, they came to meet their new baby brother or cousin.  Josh thought he was pretty small.
 Evangel helped Nathanael get in on the joy of it. 
 Here is the first picture of the fearsome foursome together.  Not the greatest photography, but they are a bunch of movers and shakers!  A high action group, for sure, and we are just happy to have one that's not totally blurry. 

Midwife Marian was a great help and source of confidence in the home birth. 

Pirate Nathanael might be glad not to be the youngest anymore.  Maybe people will take him
more seriously.  :-) 
 Eyes open!  A rare treat in these early days. 
 Connie's loving her new baby brother...
 and they share a happy moment. 
 Daniel's feeling the seriousness of being big brother to THREE siblings now.  It's a weighty responsibility, Matey. 

A blessed woman!   
Nathanael thinks this is the end of the matter.  And a very happy ending it is.
