From Jon Eben

It is with great pleasure that I announce the birth of Shane Roger Maitland Field. He arrived this morning at 6:32am weighing 7 lbs and 12.9 oz. He is a healthy and happy baby who is already feeding well. S. has done a tremendous amount of work and is a beaming proud mother already deeply in love with her baby boy. The small fish in the first picture was made by Shane's proud big sister, Miriam, for the moment when he was born.

Here is why we chose his name:
Shane (Irish meaning gift from god and it sounds pretty darn cool)
Roger (for my recently deceased father)
Maitland (for the village in rural Nova Scotia where I grew up)

We are both thrilled and tired after a long night. We want to thank everyone who has supported us nutritionally, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually through these days.
