Jonah Elliot Willis

We are so proud to announce the arrival of our beautiful baby boy, Jonah Elliot! He was born March 8th at 12:02pm (after much travail), weighing 7lbs and measuring 19 ½ inches long. The events surrounding his birth unfolded in an unexpected way, provoking excitement and concern, but triggering in us a wave of trust in the unfailing love of God. Jonah was immediately admitted to NICU upon delivery, but God has been so gracious to us. He was released to the well nursery this afternoon and is now with us in our room. We hope that you’ll join us in giving praise to God for this marvelous little life. More details (and many more pictures) will come after things calm down a bit. Thank you for your prayers!
