Baby Praise has arrived!

We rejoice to announce the arrival of  our little “Baby Praise” – Nehemiah Schmidt Loomis!

Yesterday, June 14th, at 3:53 p.m. the Lord brought our son into the world! Nehemiah weighed 9lb. 3oz. at birth, and is 21″ long. He has thin, light reddish hair, and beautiful blue eyes.

Nehemiah means compassion of the Lord. His middle name, Schmidt, is named after his great Grandfather.

Rebecca and Nehemiah are recovering wonderfully. Thank you for all your prayers for the safe arrival of this little one.

Pictures to follow in time.
