The journey of Shane Eubanks and Crystal Alred
It has been a long time since the last post on here and a lot has happened since then and it would take days to type everything out, but this latest blessing in our lives absolutely deserved to be posted about! On January 24, 2008 at 7:11pm EST Crystal gave birth to our first child, a baby boy, named Harper Cole Eubanks!!! He weighed in at 7lbs 5oz and measured 20 inches long. I’m biased, but he’s the cutest and most amazing child I have ever seen. When people say that words can’t describe the emotions you feel when you have a child, it’s completely true. When I saw him born, I laughed, cried, and was overwhelmed with feelings I had never known. I definitely have an entirely new respect for mothers after seeing what Crystal went through!!!!
And yes…..he has already peed all over me……and I laughed. THAT should tell you how much I love the little guy!!!
Thank you to everyone who prayed, called, visited, and simply had us in your thoughts. Those prayers have gotten us through many ups & downs throughout Crystal’s pregnancy, but this entire experience has been an enormous blessing to us, our family, and friends. Crystal and I are incredibly blessed to have you as a major part of our lives and know that we thank God for you daily.
