Babies need calenders

Our congregation has a brand new member! Her name is Oana, pronounced like "wanna." As in I wanna come into this world on April 5th, the night mom and dad and the whole family are observing the most important and sacred event of the year. But babies don't come with calandars or watches; they come when they come - ready or not. Oana decided to come about 40 minutes before 7:30 when the observance began. A very tired dad and the friend who was helping translate at the hospital stumbled in around 7:40 in their jeans and sweat shirts (and of course with pictures on their cell phones for everyone to see the new arrival). Welcome little Oana. Your timing may be off but your birth will be well remembered by all who know you.
