New Halter in the family.

Daniel Robert Imani was born (with much effort!) on August 11 at 3:40 PM. He is 8 lb 12 oz and 22 inches long.

About his name:

Daniel Robert Imani Halter –He is named after Daniel in the Bible, who was faithful to God regardless of the circumstances or the consequences. He honored the Lord in everything he did and was filled with wisdom. Robert is for his two grandfathers, who are both fun, hardworking men with strong character and integrity. Imani is a Swahili name which means faith, honesty, conviction and kindness. We pray that Daniel will grow to be a wise, strong and faithful man, who honors God with his life.

More to follow (of course!)

His loving parents: Dave and Sarah.

What a beautiful prayer for your baby boy. I'm tearing up! I look forward to meeting him, whenever we make it back to MI, heck we'll head up to northern KY if you make it down! I hope that you all are able to have some good rest, even if it's not much, and I'm praying for a wonderful adjustment, healing, health and peace for you all. Sending you my love and a gigantic hug!
