Olivia Grace is Here!

I know everyone thinks their baby is the most beautiful, but in this case she is and on so many levels.  If you're new to my blog, Olivia is my great granddaughter.  My daughter, pregnant at 15, surrendered her baby for adoption and I posted about meeting that baby again as an adult here.  I posted a follow-up to that post here.  Thanks to the love and sharing of her baby's adoptive parents, we get to celebrate this event, born three, one, one, three - 3/1/2013, what a great birth date.










I'm in awe of this moment, so thankful and filled with pride in my daughter in her courage to say no to the friend who offered her money for an abortion - no one will ever know, he said.  I look at my beautiful grandson who is a total goofball, like his mommy, and who looks like both my boys.  I look this this gorgeous baby and give thanks to God.  Awed.  I am in awe.
