(These first seven blog posts were originally letters, written and emailed to our friends and family. I am including them here because they are a big part of telling our story.)

Dear Friends,
Our Evie Grace was born into the arms of Jesus this afternoon at 1:28pm. She weighed 2.5 lbs and was 13.5" long.

God was gracious to give us a safe delivery without any complications. We were able to spend 2 hours with her, memorizing her beautiful face that we have waited to finally see. She really was lovely. We praised God that her sweet little body is now perfect. We prayed and sang and had a sweet goodbye with her. We are so grateful for God's promises that our goodbye today was not forever.

We plan to have a private burial on Saturday and invite you to join us for a Memorial service this Sunday at 5:00pm at Parish Presbyterian Church.

We, with our family, are very sad to say goodbye. Pray for us in these days and weeks ahead that God will fill the void she has left in us with His comfort and promises.

All our love,
Ryan, Raechel & Oliver Myers
