Oh Happy Day!

Tonight I am most thankful.
It has been an incredible day.
I can hardly write the words
without tears falling.
Our beautiful baby
has finally arrived.

Ollie Faith
was born at 8:23 p.m.
She weighed in at 7Lbs. 10oz.
She has wild brown hair and
one perfect extra chromosome.

Tomorrow morning
they do the echo to see 
how her heart is formed.
She nursed like a champ.
She had great APGAR scores.
She is amazing.
She is fabulous.
I am crazy for her.
I know she is absolutely
the baby that was meant for us.
When I saw her face
my heart leapt with joy.
I am not the only one in the family 
who is nuts about her.
Aubrie is head over heels.

Everett is wild for her.


She was worth the wait.
I thought the day 
would never get here.
We all wept with relief when
we got the word
She HAS arrived!
Praise the Lord.
He has sent us 
a most special gift.
We wouldn't trade her 
for the world.
I cannot imagine
the blessings 
she will bring to us.
Already, she has captured
the hearts of many.
Ollie has encouraged faith.
She has led to 
strengthened prayer lives.
She has helped others 
to hope in their Lord.
We have learned that
God gives us peace
when we cry out to him.
He has a plan for this baby girl's life.
I for one, can't wait to see it unfold.
Thank you for joining me on this 
most exciting ride.
I am confident in saying
the best is yet to come.

This scripture came to my mind 
about how I feel...
rooted and built up in him,
strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
and overflowing with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:7

God bless you my friends!

  4. I was in prayer all day yesterday for Ollie Faith and the entire family and shared that with my co-workers, who joined in. I know that at least three times before the end of the day someone asked me "Any news?". :) Thank you, Dear God for beautiful, tiny, glorious Ollie Faith. Bless her with your love and health and happiness. We are forever grateful.
