Congratulations Lynn & Darryl

Its been such a long road, but finally they have their first bundle of joy. Lynn & Darryl started dating in highschool, they were married July 1st, 2000 and have been trying to have a child ever since. They've had two miscarriages, lots of emotions especially sadness and frustration, they built a new home, and then as of yesterday became parents. Lynn was due either June 23 or July 1st (two ultrasounds, two dates) however he just didn't want to come out, so yesterday they induced her. From the time they started the process to his birth it was approx 2 and 1/2 hours. Mom and baby are doing fine even though she is "extremely" sore, as expected I would assume.

He was 10lbs and is being named Philip Clarence Sheppard (Philip after Lynns dad and Clarence after Darryls dad) Both families couldn't be more excited. Especially Darryls parents who have all grand-daughters and can now say they have a grandson. Grandmother Audrey has already purchased him his first TONKA truck...he he.

Can't wait to see him when we go home in August. Congratulations Lynn and Darryl, its been a long road but through it all its been worth it and you deserve all the best.
