Welcome Elizabeth!

“ We give you thanks, O LORD, with our whole hearts…We give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. On the day we called, you answered us; our strength of soul you increased.”


Psalm 138:1-3

Our Elizabeth Mae.
3 years waited. 2 weeks early. 1 family complete.

Our family of three.

After meeting her Nana, Papa, Aunt, Uncle and three cousins. Tired girl.

Time to go home…as our family of three.
