Milena Kalani Wagar
I am sorry that it took me so long to get this email out. We just wanted to let you know that our daughter has arrived! Milena was born on Tuesday, November 24, 2015 at 3:24pm (EST). She weighted 8.7lb and was 21in long. Sarah had an awesome delivery. However, there were some minor complications right after the baby was born, but the Lord brought Sarah through that. She suffered quite a serious tear and possibly fractured or broke her tailbone, so recovery will take quite some time. Praise the Lord, though, we have seen her recovering nicely over this past week.
Milena is healthy and happy! She loves to eat and sleep. I know that her name is a bit different, so I will break down the pronunciation. Milena (ME-LAY-NUH) means "grace." It is of Czech origin, though that is not why we chose the name. I like the name Grace, and we both liked the name Milena; it was a perfect fit. Kalani (KAH-LAH-NEE) is Hawaiian and it means "of the Heavens." Wagar (WAY-GAR) is my last name, so she pretty much had no choice on that one! ; ) We are thrilled that the Lord gave her to us.
Thank you for praying for us and being so interested in the birth of our little one! We are excited to show you how she grows!
Love in Christ,
Josh, Sarah, and Milena Wagar
