Welcome to the world Asher!

Baby Asher (Asher means happy in Hebrew) was born around 2:30pm. He weighs 4.1oz and has an awesome little nose- and amazing feet with really long toes- which Kristy says all of her boys have had. He has been held and loved up by many family and friends. We are all so thankful for Kristy and Howard letting us meet him! Luke and Ben have spent some time with him as well. Kenny Sturm has been there the whole time taking many pictures that I believe Kristy will post so that you all can check him out. The c section went well. Right now he is here, with his family, being loved and held. That is all I can tell you for now. Please pray for family and friends - for all of us who love the whole Bolte gang, to be able to accept God's plan in this. I have been printing your comments and will continue to do so and will give these to Kristy and Howard. Again, please forgive me for not having the words.... I can say that he is incredible and that he has has been born into a wonderful family and is being showered with tons of love.

Welcome to the world Asher, I love your name. Kristy, I am so happy for you that it went well and you are able to meet this little miracle and give him all the love you have been storing up for him. 4lb.1oz. This is a great weight for him. Prayers here are continuing non stop as I know the road ahead is so uncertain from minute to minute. Make every moment count and know your family and Asher are covered in prayers. Love you guys.

Welcome Baby Asher! What a great name with such a great meaning! I'm sure, though, it will be hard for everyone to start calling him Asher; as he's been known as "Happy" for some time now. :o) So glad to hear that the c-section went well, but I'll be continuing to pray for what lies ahead. It's wonderful that he is blessed by so many people that love him. Can't wait to see pictures!

Take good care and know that you are still being thought of and prayed for often.

We are praying for a Miracle for you. You're in our thoughts and prayers.. Happy is so blessed to have you for his family..

My husband is sitting here looking at me like I'm crazy... I tears of happiness streaming down my face (not to mention a ton of mascara!).

Asher is a PERFECT name for your little boy. So strong... just like him.

I can hardly wait to see all the gorgeous pictures of Asher... does he look a lot like his 3 brothers? Does he have red hair like you all?

Enjoy your time together... please give him a kiss from our family.
