On Tuesday September 29th at 11:55pm, God gave the gift of a son to the Patterson family. He was a healthy 8 lbs 1 oz and was 20.5 inches.
While those facts are often the first to be asked they are of the least importance. If he had a cleft palate, and was blind, would he be loved and cherished any less? I am sure the answer would be no from any normal person. The physical statistics are fun to know and compare with what others have had, but as I watched his amazing gift come out of the womb, and breath his first, I was struck with the wonder of God, and His grace in giving us our own life and breath, let alone showering on us the joy that comes from a child of our own. God is so good and kind to us in a thousand difference ways. Thank you Lord for your Mercy. While I would be lying if I said I didn't look to see if he had all his fingers on toes, the questions of stature are of little significance. But it's still okay to ask, I ask them too. :)
Thanking God for our new son, Kyle
