words cannot begin to describe the emotions that were present in the labor and delivery room that morning, so i’ll let the images speak for themselves.

every birth is a miracle – this auntie is praising God for her new little niece!


3/10/2012 – “Today I praise God for my granddaughter’s first birthday. One year ago this date I witnessed her birth and, with that, the miraculous hand of God. Shayne did not take her first breath until after moments of fervent prayer and medical staff intervention. Our robust baby girl, already a delight to God’s heart, is an absolute joy to our family and household. “Thank you, Lord, for Shayne.”‘  ~ Grandma Joy (Rebekah Muñana)
