She’s Here! Adele Lila Kay Sims Has Arrived

This Advent season was particularly special for our home. We were not only celebrating the arrival of Jesus; we were eagerly awaiting the arrival of our own baby Adele Lila Kay. The experience gave me a new perspective while reading the birth narratives. Consider, for instance, the journey Joseph and Mary make from their home town of Nazareth to Bethlehem. The nervous, anticipation while they were traveling must have been palpable. I’m sitting here typing this the night before the arrival of my daughter and my stomach is in knots. I’m not sure exactly why but with all of my kids I’ve had this kind of anxiousness and eagerness. You would think I’d be a pro after two already, but the experience and anticipation is fresh each time.

I appreciate the relationship we’ve built and the opportunity for mutual edification with all of you out there. So I wanted to share this moment of joy with you, my brothers and sisters in Christ. Praise God with me for the safe arrival of Adele Lila Kay. She’s 6 lbs. 12 oz. and 20 in. long with a healthy head of hair. I hope your holiday season was enjoyable and relaxing!
