By the way, his full name (we just reached agreement today) is Seraphim
Alexander Ezekiel Sherman.
Seraphim is after St. Seraphim of Sarov, a Russian Orthodox saint of the
late 18th- and early 19th centuries. Alexander is because we like the name.
ANd Ezekiel is because he was born on the name day (in the Orthodox
tradition) of the Holy Prophet Ezekiel.
Thanks for all your prayers and words of comfort and encouragement.
