The First Day of the Rest of Her Life

After seven nights in NICU, Gabriella is finally with us. Today is the first day of the rest of her life. To all who held us so tightly in prayer during this very difficult time, we want to express our extreme gratitude and appreciation. Thank you for standing with us in prayer, seeking God for health and healing for our newest child. Your prayers are powerful and effective, so don't stop.

If you happen to be in the Maryland area, please feel free to contact us if you want to come see the newest missionary in the family.

May 4, 2010

We are blessed to announce the birth of our daughter, Gabriella Jean Anasco. She was born at 6:20p on Tuesday May 4, 2010. The delivery was challenging, and the challenges continue. Gabriella is currently in NICU and will likely remain for the next several days. There is an issue with her red blood cells the requires more care. We are trying to visit her as often as we can, usually three times a day. Fortunately they let siblings into the NICU so we can all visit her together as a family.

Please pray for Gabriella for her full recovery and continued development. I will post more pictures soon.
