Introducing Ivan James Hengeveld

We are thrilled to announce that my big brother, Gerrit, and his beautiful wife, Lauren, had their baby boy on August 5th:  5 pounds 14 ounce, 19.5 inch. They’ve named him Ivan James Hengeveld. Ivan, which is a derivative of John, means ‘God is gracious’ or ‘gift of God.’ Ivan is a family name on Lauren’s dad’s side; John is Gerrit’s middle name and my dad’s name; James is our grandpa’s name.  He’s handsome and wonderful and I CANNOT wait to snuggle him!!  We “met” him through skype last week.  Micah was taking care of his baby (now named Ivan James by Ethan) while we chatted.
