I first met baby Owen just a few short hours after his birth two weeks ago, so we're relatively new acquaintances.
But, I've known his Mama for nearly ten years now (can you believe that, Nell?) and have prayed for and anticipated this baby boy with her probably more than any baby I've known (short of my own children, of course).
Owen is welcomed by three older siblings and has one very precious, very missed big sister in Heaven, buried just steps from our Evie-girl.
We that love Owen and his family have been holding our breath in anticipation of the birth of this child and the opportunity to smell him and kiss him and get a load of his gorgeous strawberry hair.
What a miracle. To be loved by so many so immediately.
We are so glad you're here baby boy.
