Our Contribution to Society

I believe that all of the appropriate family members, family friends, church family, etc. have now been personally notified of this event and that it is now safe/appropriate to document it on the blog and facebook. Here is the e-mail Heather sent out a couple of weeks ago:

Hello dear friends,

Joel and I are delighted to tell you we're pregnant!

We're 13 weeks along, and the baby is due October 21st. Everything looks great so far, no problems at all. When we saw the baby on the ultrasound at 7 weeks, it looked very much like a seahorse. Despite how adorable seahorses are, we're rooting for the end product to be a baby.

Incidentally, we found out we were pregnant the same day we found out Joel passed his PhD (One labor ending, another beginning...).

We are beyond grateful for the love and support you all have given us in our lives and marriage so far. We welcome you to celebrate with us as our lives change once again!

Heather & Joel Shaver

Woohoo! So excited, we'll be rooting for a baby as well. A seahorse might be easier to deliver, but probably not as rewarding.

PS We're now 15 weeks along!

Hi, Heather and Joel! It's just James from 'Silent Servants'. SWMBO and I want to pass along our congratulations to you, and say how excited we are for you! We'll keep you in our prayers. I tried to post this last night, but Blogger was down.

Anyway, congratulations again!

Hi James! Thanks for visiting, and thanks for your prayers! It will be an interesting transition, but we're looking forward to it.
