It's a boy!

I am humbled to share that my husband and I have been blessed with a son, Waleed. He was born Mother's Day weekend on May 7, 2010 at 7:02pm measuring 21 1/4 inches and weighing in at 7lb 12oz. This blog has always been my place to express my thoughts on life, but how does one express what it feels like to look into your son's eyes for the first time? How can I explain the simultaneous feelings of excitement and amazement which jostle for position amongst heart stopping panic at the realization that you are now responsible for a completely pure creature who stares at you with total trust to guide him in learning this world? Words fail. I can simply say I'm grateful for this new chapter God has honored us with and I hope we will be the parents that our son deserves. May he live a long and happy life. Ameen.
