Our family is happy to announce the arrival of our newest member (and Westbrook’s youngest church attendee), baby Eden Everly Petersen. Eden made her (overdue) appearance on Friday, May 11 2018. She weighed in at 8 pounds 1 ounce with a height of 19.5 inches. She was welcomed with arms wide open by big sisters Myla and Scarlett and with an eye roll by brother Kingston who is way outnumbered by the girls.
Our family has been adjusting well with Eden’s arrival (thanks to our Westbrook friends). Rebecca had an unexpected c-section, so the recovery time has been a bit longer than we anticipated. But it’s giving us both a perspective of family unity as we seek to take care of each other and our kiddos. And we couldn’t be more blessed by our wonderful Westbrook family who has graciously come alongside of us as we transition to a family of 6. We are humbled and encouraged by the many Westbrookers who have brought us food, gifts, prayers and advice. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! In this season, we are reminded of the scripture verse of Romans 12:10 “Be devoted to one another in love”. Thank you, Westbrook, for showing us love in action. Eden can’t wait to meet you all!
