a gift


She's here. In my arms.
My girl.
The one we'd hoped for, prayed for, dreamed of for over a year.
My Frances.

I'd planned on sharing the story tonight, but mama is working on two hours of sleep, 
so the details will have to wait.

But tonight I will close my eyes with a full heart, snuggled close to my baby,
my daughter, grateful beyond words.

  11. Carina, I saw your instagrams about Frances just moments before I opened your sweet Christmas card. It melted me knowing your family will look so different on next year's card! And your words were so sweet. Bless you, friend. Saying prayers of peace and joy over you both tonight. ps. I felt an instant delight upon seeing her in that cute headband on insta bc my mom's name is Frances and my MIL is Francine :)
