Rowan's Birthday - A Blessed Success!

[Nota Bene: The author of this post is Sommer's husband, Dan.]

The scheduled birth (via caesarean section) of Rowan Meara Sorenson went off without a hitch.  Both baby and momma are doing very well.  Rowan Meara was born at April 14th 2009 at 1:24pm PST.  She weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces; she was 19'' long.  Sommer will no doubt download other pictures from the digital camera soon.  They are really beautiful pictures.  I just tried to post on this blog the pictures I took from my camera phone but for some reason was not able to.

Sommer and I thank you all for the prayers you have offered up in regards to a safe delivery.   These prayers were answered by all indication with a "Yes."  Thank the Lord for his mercy and his blessings!
