Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

Aunt Kathy made this sign for Nathan!!

The sign and lots of balloons welcomed us home Monday -- the minute I saw them I cried! We are so relieved to have our son home after almost 3 weeks.

This was Nathan's first car seat experience!

Nathan's first day was terrific! He slept a lot although he didn't eat that well during the day. I think the peace and quiet really made him sleepy!

He ate well during the night and snuggled with his mommy on the couch! He also has eaten well at his feedings this morning. Right this very moment he is fast asleep in his swing that Grandpa and Mema gave him. He loves it!!!
We have our first doctor appointment tomorrow!

Man, he is SO cute! We are so glad to see that he is settling in to life at home with Mommy and Daddy. Bringing home a new baby (especially after a long wait) is just an amazing feeling. We're excited for you guys to start your life as a family! Love, Maghan, Dave, and Mairead
