Per Yoder’s press office, the newborn — measuring in at 20 inches long and weighing 6 pounds, 1 ounce, as recorded by the staff at Shawnee Mission Medical Center in Shawnee Mission, Kan. — officially joined the family at 2:16 p.m. last Thursday.

“Someone once told us that having a baby is the one chance we get to help God perform a miracle. We’re so fortunate and blessed to add Caroline into our lives and thankful of God’s miracle of life that brought her into our family,” Yoder announced to the world on his Facebook page.

This is the first child for Yoder and his wife, Brooke.
