Raegan Elizabeth Diehl

Posted by on 28 Dec 2009 | Tagged as: Adoption

It is our distinct pleasure and honor to introduce you to our new daughter, Raegan Elizabeth.
Raegan Elizabeth
Raegan was born on Saturday, December 26 at 2:42 p.m. in Florida. We drove down, leaving early on Christmas morning.
Raegan was born weighing in a very petite 5 lbs. even, 16 inches long.
Emily was able to be in the operating room with the birthmother as she was delivered by C-section. Emily was able to snap some photos of Raegan getting cleaned up just moments after her birth.

We have spent much of the past two days at the hospital with Raegan, the birthmother and birthfather. It was really a great experience to get to know the birthparents. I think we got the best birthparents of all time!
Here are some more photos of her. When we have some more down time, we’ll post some more about the whole experience.

    We are so thrilled for you! What an unspeakable blessing. We serve such a gracious God. She is a beautiful little girl. The Bible says that children are a blessing from the Lord. How true this verse is. We are rejoicing with you, Nathan and Emily and little Raegan!
