"The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here," she wrote at the time alongside a photo of a baby cap. "He's got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik's mouth and chin. As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world."

In a separate post, Asla said, "Witnessing the dawn of life is quite possibly life's greatest gift."
