Josiah Jason Foster

Josiah was born early this morning. Here are the “deets”

•7lbs 11oz
•21in long
•born at 1:22am in 09.19.09
•looks like he might be a dirty-blond
•slightly crooked pinky finger

We’ve had his name picked out since we were dating in college. Josiah was a king who rediscovered the God of Isreal after they had abandoned their ways. He cleared out the temple and city of idols and false-worship and rededicated it to God. We pray that Josiah will be a servant of Jeaus Christ and that he will grow in te way of the Lord. Please pray a dedication of his life with us.

Jason is my brother’s name. He named his second (of three) after me. It is an honor to also ne able to honor him.

Foster comes from Forester…the keeper’s of the king’s forest. On our family crest it reads “Si Fractus Fortus” which means “though broken, strong.”

Yeah…he’s got an awesome name. But even more an amazing and loving God who has knit him together. And a great heritage to conribute to.

There’s probably a ton of typos in this post…sorry, I’m tired and I’m laying on a cot in the hospital. I’ll fix em later.
