It is with great joy that our family of four becomes five!
God has given us Jeremiah Samuel Betler who was born in Singapore on 18 January 2010 at 5:31pm, weighing 3.970 kg. …with a big head! 😉
Angelique (my wife) was a true champion and is doing well. Plenty of pictures will soon follow, but this one from my Blackberry was the best I could get to you for now. (More pictures will follow.)
I can hardly wait for Jeremiah to meet his big sister Juoleanne (now 5) and big tough-guy brother Jonathan (almost 20 months). Jeremiah is somewhat special to us because our first two children came to life in the United States. Jeremiah Samuel however, was “made in Singapore;” our new home. Parenthood is an amazing privilege!
As I looked at this new little man, I thought about the supreme privilege and honor we have to be made into the image of God. We have the amazing opportunity to imitate the holy ways of God. No other creature carries such dignity. We were made by God to reflect God. And we are most human when we do it.
I trust that Jeremiah Samuel Betler will have plenty of opportunities to be human.
Welcome, Jeremiah!!! Can’t wait to see what Jesus has prepared for you!
We love you little man, Daddy and Mommy 😉
