We welcomed Mary Ellen Elikya Klug into our family this week. She was 8 lbs, 3 oz and 21 inches long. We are honored that she shares the name Mary with Amy's mother and grandmother, and with Jeff's mother and grandmother as well. Our Ellie also shares the name Ellen with Amy's grandmother and sister. The name Elikya is a congolese name which means "Hope" in lingala. We are so thankful for this new blessing.
