A Welcome (Para)Site

Yes, it is true! Di Silvestri baby seven is officially under development and looking just perfect for 10 weeks along.

We are delighted to receive this gift and hope you will join us in praying for his/her safe arrival sometime around Thanksgiving.

Naturally, we are referring to the baby as 'Lucky'. Now, don't worry, all you literal folks out there--we aren't actually going to NAME the baby Lucky. It's just too much corny fun for this family to pass up. And you know what I say...if you don't have a solid sense of humor, you DEFINITELY should not have seven kids.

Happily, our humor is in excellent shape, so bring it on! Welcome, Lucky!

Jason wants to know at what pont to you qualify as a small nation?
There must be some great tax benefits in being one, you should check into it! And wants me to reiterate once again....does MBA stand for Making Babies Always? :)
Love to all.

Kyle has been asking when the next one is coming. I can now tell him that lucky is on the way. Congratulations!!! We are thrilled for you. May your next several months go much smoother than the last pregnancy. Also, we will have to rethink the visit of Becca and Kyle; it may too much for you. We'll talk soon. Love you lots and God Bless.

Seven is a wonderful number (Eight is even better!).

I have a good friend whose comment is always the same when she finds out we are pregnant again, "This is the best gift you can give to those big brothers and sisters!"
So true!

Congratulations!

CONGRATULATIONS! I don't think anyone who knows you is surprised. Especially since you said your favorite number is seven. It is a very magical number and LUCKY. He or she is Lucky because they will belong to all of you. I am so thrilled for you. This means you either get a new car of Joey gets to sit in front. I highly recommend the suburban. I love mine.

Congratulations! I will keep you guys in prayer and make sure to add you to the St. Gerard list if you aren't added already. Your grace and openness to having a large family is truly inspiring. I keep thinking how will I manage 3? I don't know if I could manage 7! But I definitely agree 7 is a magical number. For a name that would fit with "Lucky", if it's a girl would be Luciana (Italian for light) and then she could be called Lucky Luciana! hehehe......

On a different note, at least you were able to avoid the Peter Pan remarks,( i.e. is our girl going to be called Wendy since we already have a John and a Michael). Now that our oldest knows about the connection (thank you to our friends) he keeps referring to the "the baby in the belly" as Wendy.

Congratulations! I couldn't be happier for you and, as everyone else, was not surprised to hear the news. Good luck with the pregnancy - you'll be in my thoughts and prayers! We look forward to seeing baby Lucky come fall! Renee

Suzanne and Jay... Congratulations! Number 7... you are still behind the Sparks clan (8). Please say "Hi" to Jay and the children for Paula and I. We hope you might find a chance to visit the Kansas ranch sometime. You, "Lucky", and the family are in our prayers. Drop us a line sometime soon! Look me up on Facebook so we can share our new contact info. - Joe

Hi DiSilvesti Family!

I was not at all surprised to learn of your next buddle of joy. You once said to me that you wanted to have your own basketball team! You are on your way. Cassie has moved back to Calif. She is living with me at the lake this summer and will start at the Art Institute of San Francisco in July. She is thrilled to be back on home turf! Think of you guys often and am always reading your postings.

Much love to you and your blessed family, Anne Clark
