A New Baby in the Family


On Monday, July 20th, the Lord added a new grandbaby to the Sloan family. Since there are eight Sloan children and all of the ladies (or the wives of the Sloan men) are in their child-bearing years, the number of grandbabies keeps growing at a very fast rate! The number of grandbabies is close to 30 now. Just to give you an idea of the growth rate, my 5-year-old is the 12th grandbaby...

Meet Mark Alan Ralph Sloan, 3rd son of Philip and Liz (my brother-in-law and his wife who are missionaries in Chiapas, Mexico). Since many of you know them, I thought I would add these pictures here on my blog so that you could rejoice with us in his birth. Little Mark was born by way of C-section and weighed 7.1 pounds. Isn't he just adorable?! I can't wait to meet him some day (although I'm sure he'll be MUCH bigger when that day comes!).


  1. He is adorable! I'm so happy for Philip and Elizabeth!

  2. Congratulations, Aunt Jolene! He sure is a cutie.

  3. thanks for posting pictures of the new baby! Wow..3 sons...i wonder what the secret is!?!?! :) - Maria

  4. You're so funny, Maria! God has something special in store for you with those three beautiful daughters He gave you! Those of us who DO have sons are going to want sweet girls for them to marry some day! :)
