congratulations nathan & lauren!

Posted on December 9, 2008


As many of you know, one of my best friends on the planet is Nathan Millican.  Nathan used to serve as our college minister at Highview, and recently moved to Orlando to be an associate pastor at aloma baptist church.  Nathan and his wife have been praying for God to give them a child for several years, and have waited patiently for the perfect unfolding of God’s plan for their family.

Space won’t permit me to share the incredible details of their story, but they decided a few months ago to begin the process of adopting a child from a young mother who was going to give the baby up.  This was definitely not the easy road of adoption, since birth mothers legally have 90 days post-partum to claim motherhood rights.  We have all been praying for them and this morning, at 3:32am, little Lucianne was born (7 lbs, 7oz, 20 in. long). Congratulations, Nathan, Lauren, and Lucianne Millican – your friends couldn’t be more excited and proud for you!  And as with every major life event for those of us who know Nate, he is crying (we’ll let this one pass).  You can see more pictures at Lucianne’s website.
