...and some are hard fought for. This is one of the latter. This little girl's parents have ran a marathon for her. They had a lot of tough luck trying to have a baby on their own, so they decided to adopt. They had a birth mother back out at the last minute. After three plus years of heartbreak and sadness they get the call : a birth mom is due on Tuesday, are you ready? They were. It is amazing how mountains of pain can crumble in the face of the first moments of true love.
She is the smallest baby I have ever held - 5 lb 8 oz at birth.
Feet are my favorite - can you tell? She is terribly expressive for a 7 day old:
She is perfect. Everything a parent can ask for. I can't wait to see how she grows.
