Our little bundle arrived quite peacefully on Saturday morning at 7:42am.
As it turns out, the birth of your child is every bit as incredible as everyone says it is. It left me shaking; literally from the adrenaline, but also from the emotion of seeing Francis for the first time. We really couldn’t be happier with him and really do find every little look, hand gesture, or squeak enchanting.
Francis Xavier was named after Father Xavier, our dear friend and the priest who married us, as well as after the Saint who was one of the first missionaries to Asia and who died off the coast of Hong Kong, trying to reach China.We’re back home now getting to know one another in between naps!
