Celebrating New Families


Blogs link people and their stories across miles. It allows us to develop fast friendships, share the experience, support each other through the difficult times, and celebrate the joys. I send out congratulations to two of my blog friends. I've followed along with both of these women and now they are new moms.

To Katie in Massachusetts CONGRATULATIONS on the twin arrival of Ruth and Aster. You can check out the twin on the Straight Magic blog.

To Grace in Pennsylvania CONGRATULATIONS on the successful court finalization for Hosanna Faith. I also have to send a big shout out and CONGRATULATIONS to Abigail as a new big sister. This is one fortunate little girl, your lives will truly be blessed. Meet the new baby on All These Reasons.

I am so happy for both of these families. It's great to see the whole plan come together even if there were a few curves along the way. You ladies have made me laughed, helped me believed, kept me encouraged, and inspired.

Thanks and congratulations!

Thanks Valerie! I have thought of you often and I'm really looking forward to the day when I can post a comment saying 'welcome to your new happy home' to your kids. Congratulations on making your way through that list!
