Congratulations!!!!
and now the absolute, pure joy floods in and washes away all of the pain and heartache of waiting all of these years to hold your child in your arm..... Oh, how she was worth the wait. Oh, how you are so thankful that you had to wait because the Lord's timing is perfect and YOUR Tate is now in your arms...
But, oh, how you are thankful that the wait is OVER!
