We welcomed our second little boy, Maddox Donald Stanfield, at 4:25PM today. He weighed 3lbs and was 15 inches long. He appeared with a brief, faint heartrate, opened his eyes to look at his daddy, and then went home to be with our Lord.
We are doing well and so thankful for all of the prayers storming Heaven on our behalf. The Lord has been extremely faithful and answered each prayer for us... some exactly as we petitioned and others somewhat differently than we had expected... yet all answered prayers.
We will be having a memorial service at Second Baptist Church- West Campus on Saturday, January 26th, 2008, at 10am, to celebrate our Creator's faithfulness in bringing this child to us. We love our son, and our God, so much! We are so thankful for your prayers and that we could share this journey with you.

Maddox's verse- "But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, And He who formed you, 'Do not fear for I have redeemed you. I have called you by name; you are mine!'" Isaiah 43:1
