She’s Here!!

Bethany Faith, our newest granddaughter, arrived around 11:20 pm at 8 pounds 13 ounces after a very long and rough delivery. Melanie and baby are doing well.

We are all rejoicing!

  24. Congratulations on your newest blessing! It’s amazing how someone so small, well in this case not so small (lol), can just melt your heart. I’ll now be praying for the adjustment of having a new little one in the home. Some nights can be a challenge but so very worth it!!!! Our youngest is 9 weeks old and those nights are fresh, but with all its challenges, I wouldn’t change it for anything!!
