Bethany Lynn Ward

Bethany Lynn WardOur fifth child, Bethany Lynn Ward, arrived this morning! We got to the hospital around 9:00 am and she was born at 11:56. Both Bethany and Sherry are doing very well. We are very thankful for no complications during birth (and no cord wrapped around her neck like almost all of our other children!). She is a very cute, plump (for Ward babies) 8 lb 4 oz and is 22" long. She was a beautiful pink and scored very high on the Apgar test. Her first two feedings went well and on the second she was already gulping. What a blessing!

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward. - Psalm 127:3
