May 3

So what is the significance of that day? Who was born on that day? The noted Italian political philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli and author of The Prince celebrated his birthday on May 3. At the other end of the spectrum, James Brown the "Godfather of Soul" celebrated his birthday on May 3rd.

If all goes according to plan--unless she comes on her own--our fourth child will be born on May 3. Being that this is still considered an at risk pregnancy, and also being that both Mother and child continue to progress along very healthily, the doctors have decided to reduce any further chances of risk and induce this pregnancy into delivery. This is scheduled for Monday May, 3, 2010.

As most of you know, we are currently Stateside, in Maryland, so unlike Daniel, our daughter will be, to quote Bruce Springsteen, "Born in the U.S.A.!" Actually she will be born in the same hospital that Eric and Faith were born, Howard County General.

So things are about to get more exciting around here. We are very excited to meet the newest addition to our family, and we are also blessed that many of our Stateside friends and family will also get to see her very soon. Daniel keeps talking about being a big brother, something he is very much looking forward to.

Please continue to keep both Mother and child in your prayers. With her coming, we will have two boys and two girls in our family. So does that mean we are complete?

Thanks again to all who are holding us tightly in prayer. Keep watching this space, (truly) more to come . . .

    Looks like Danny will become a big brother just about a month after Aaron did. I'm so excited for you guys.

  2. Thanks, Dano. Bless all four of you.

  3. We're praying for all 6 of you as you meet your new family member soon! We can't wait to meet her too!
