The Season for Good Tidings and Great News! 海人!

The phone call that we have been waiting for finally came unexpectedly on a Sunday night as we sat down to eat a dinner.

The good news has come in the form of a son, Kaito (pronounced Kite-O) who was born on November 21, 2011 in Hokkaido, Japan. His name, 海人, means Ocean Person. He is healthy and doing great.

We are now finalizing plans for when we will meet him. We will let you know when that happens.

Please contact us through the blog for future updates!

With much love, Andy & Cheryl
