Our son was born on Sunday, January 10th at 2:27 am. He weighed 7 pounds and eight ounces and was born completely healthy. Praise God for his goodness!
I will have to return to post his entire birth story but below is an announcement that Michael made on Sojourn’s message board.
Hey, Sojourn folks. This is Michael (using my wife’s account because the City is prejudiced against me and won’t let me log in anymore). Just wanted to share some good news. Namely that our son was born last Monday, January 10, at 2:27 am. After much deliberation (and gentle prodding from friends and family to name him already), we decided on the name Amos Hiler Morgan. The name Amos caught my attention during Sojourn’s trek through the Old Testament. We liked the fact that Amos was a regular man that God called to great work, and we wish such a legacy for our son. And it means (depending on who you ask) burdened or burdened for God’s people. Hiler is a family name, a maiden name on my paternal grandmother’s side. And Morgan seemed to round it out pretty well (Amos Hiler Smith didn’t seem to fit).
