Announcing the Arrival of...

Tait Edward Zimmerman, Jr.

Early, but healthy, Little Tait was born on November 6, 2008, at 3:29 pm, delivered by emergency C-section. At just 27 weeks along, he needed (and still needs!) all of the prayers he so lovingly received from all of our faithful family and friends.

Thankfully, he has been breathing on his own from the beginning, and hasn't needed a respirator, which is apparently very rare for babies born at his stage in life.

While we didn't plan or expect him quite this early, we are so thankful for our precious baby boy! We hope to be able to bring him home around the middle or end of January. Please be praying that he grows into a strong, healthy newborn over the next 2-1/2 months!

To see more pictures, go to The Name Fitz. We're getting ready to head out for our daily trip to the hospital to see the little guy, and I haven't time to post them now. : ) He's just precious!

I am a blog reader in VA. My husband grew up in Juneau but has family in Anchorage. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. We will pray for continued health and development. I know he is such a sweet blessing.

God bless your family,
the Donahue's

How precious he is, down to every teeny detail! (adorable toes!)

Hope he's doing well and gaining pounds and strength!

Many blessings!
