An update is in order.  The labor was a bit longer and harder than Amara 
had hoped for.  But she gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Vija 
(vee-ya).  Attached is a low-res cellphone pic and some daat Amara took 
from the hospital.  She hopes to get around to more of an announcement 
and sharing soon.
