New blessing for the old year. Two days ago, my co-teachers and friends, Adde and Senna, brought Ryan into the world. He had a little rough beginning, but he will be fine. I was told that when Ryan heard my voice when he was in Senna’s stomach, he would get excited and move about. Now that he is in the world, Ryan gets a little smile on his face when he hears my voice. Senna and Adde were wrestling with two names….Ryan and Naufaul (sp?). They are from Pakistan. They kept asking me my opinion and Senna decided Ryan was best. So, in a way, this young boy can blame his uncle Bill for his name if he does not like it. Welcome to the world Ryan. May God bless and protect you as you grow in this world.
