He's Here!!!



Michael "Reid" Peterson 

Born via C-Section on 2/3/2009 at 5:20pm

9 pounds 2 oz

WOW!!!  We can't believe he's FINALLY here!!!  Praise the Lord!!!  Both Reid and S are doing well in recovery - thank you all so very much for your prayers!  And...as you can see... Baby P finally has a name! =)  A short little background on why we chose his name... Reid's birth family has been praying for him by the name 'Michael' since they found out that S was pregnant.  We loved that!!!  The fact that he has been so loved and showered in prayers since the very beginning is such a HUGE blessing!  So, we wanted to keep Michael in honor of them and this incredible gift that they are so selflessly giving our family... Michael "Reid"... feels so good to say that!!!  We will be posting TONS of pictures by Thursday evening... so check back in!

Congratulations!! I'm so excited for you guys! I too love the name story. Our adopted son's original first name was Caleb. When our adoption was finalized and the birth certificate was changed, Caleb became his middle name.

Riley-Grace has her grandmother's names as middle name, and Zachary had James' name as a middle name, but Matthew has a very special name commemorating his very special journey into our home and hearts. I love that you're honoring that journey in Reid.
