Special Bulletin: manchicken is a New Daddy

During UDS-Sevilla in May of 2007 I learned that my wife was pregnant. Many Ubunteros were with me to celebrate in person, and even more to celebrate in spirit. Many friends and family members, neighbors and acquaintances have wished us well and have joined us in hoping and praying for a healthy and happy baby.
I am delighted to report that these hopes have been realized and these prayers have been answered. On Tuesday, the 15th of January, my beautiful wife gave birth to our first born child. Our new son is named Michael D. Stemle, III, after his grand-father and father. He weighed in at a healthy 7 pounds, 14 ounces, and is healthy as can be. We’re delighted to have our son with us after the long wait.
My wife and I would like to extend a very special thanks to all of you who celebrated with and encouraged us.
Now, for the obligatory baby photos (more to come).
