Under most circumstances I would be very upset to have to miss the 2nd Large Group gathering of the school year and our annual Fall Leadership Retreat. But this year was different. On Thursday, September 1, Beth and I drove to the hospital, and very early on Friday morning, September 2nd, we welcomed into our lives a healthy baby girl, Faith Leigh Gambardella!
We may be a little biased, but we think she’s just perfect! (We’re also grateful for our new area director, Colleen Stein, who helped lead our retreat and care for students during our time of transition to a family of 4.) And for those who have asked – yes, Julian LOVES being a big brother!
