Sweet Baby Girl!

She is such a joy.  Just what we prayed for.  And look at those eyebrows!  They are so expressive and crack me up all day.
She is learning that we can be counted on.  She is finding comfort and solace in our arms.  I am so grateful for that.

We have chosen a name for her that means "beautiful bird".  We decided to keep her birth name as her middle name in order to honor her birth mother and that link that she has to her.

Isn't she such a little beauty?  A beautiful bird indeed!

and with a nod to the meaning of her name, her blog name will be Birdy.
