Praise the Lord

Rivers of joy, running down my cheeks!

Baby Boo has a name.

Charis Nicole Bontrager.

The alleged father signed the papers today.

“This is the LORD’s doing, and it is wondrous in our eyes.”

(“Charis” is pronounced with a “K” sound — the name would be pronounced “care-iss”)

Oh, Baby Charis.  “Grace”  What incredible GRACE has been extended to us.

Welcome to your great big family.

Baby Boo

So Precious . . .
