Hope Jane Wodzisz


Hope was born last night (September 14th) at 10:01 pm. Her stats:

Weight: 5 pounds 12 ounces
Height: 18 1/2
APGAR: 8 and 9

She came into this world kicking and screaming and we are so proud of our little girl. She looks better than we ever expected and we are the happiest new parents around. We were surrounded by love and many prayers when Hope was born...both Jerry and my families were there for her when she was born.

We had a beautiful service for her and she looked like a beautiful angel in her christening gown. After she was baptized and everyone had a chance to hold her and meet her, she and I went to Akron Children's Hospital. There really is not much to tell yet today. Jerry and I got back to the hospital at 3am to get a little sleep and we are heading back this morning to get a full report on her night and a detailed report on her echo.

We are so thankful for everyone's thoughts and prayers. I know they brought Hope to us kicking and screaming and will help her get through this possible rough road ahead.
