~ Sydney Grace ~ January 3, 2008


"From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another."

January 3, 2008 at 5:14PM Leon and I welcomed our sweet, 7lbs., 2oz, 20.5 inches "tall" Sydney Grace into the world. We will share more details soon; until then, enjoy these first photos of our little wonder.

We cannot give thanks enough for the safe delivery of Sydney ~ for the prayers and love offered by our friends and family ~ for the abundance of God's provision. Join our prayers of thanksgiving and joy!
