Baby Ella has arrived happy and healthy; her mother, Michellle, was amazing


After an amazing 11 hours, 4 minutes of labor, Ella Joyce Schorsch entered the world at 5:42 pm today.

She weighs in at 8 lbs, 8 oz and has a full head of beautiful brown hair and blue eyes like her mommy (for now). We are so in love with our little angel.

Michelle says that labor and delivery was the most amazing experience ever and watching Ella change by the minute is a joy unlike anything she’s ever known.We will be at Baby Place at least through tomorrow and likely until Sunday when we will be able to take our sweet princess home.

We’ll be sharing pictures in the coming days. In the meantime, you are more than welcome to come meet her in person at the hospital or at our home.

Love you all and thank you so much for your sweet prayers and support!
