|DRUM ROLL, PLEASE!!! Introducing CALLIE BETH PIERCE!|
GOTCHA DAY!!!!!-----WE GOT HER!!!!
Roger and I are officially the daddy and mama of the second most BEAUTIFUL girl in the world!!!! Callie Beth arrived about 30 minutes after we arrived at the government office this morning. When she was handed to me, she did some serious grunting, but she didn't shed many REAL tears. At first, she was a little stiff in my arms, but she gradually relaxed. Three and a half hours later, she is now a SNUGGLE BUNNY!!!! She is a Mama's girl right now, but she will eventually be a daddy's girl, too. It's just going to take a little time.
Molly Kate has been PHENOMENAL with the whole experience!!! She has allowed me to hold Callie Beth, and has been so sweet and sharing with her. Sometimes when Callie Beth does her serious grunting noise, Molly Kate mocks her, and then she smiles really big. She has been great sharing her toys, and she points to Callie and either says, "Sissy," or "Callie." NO-----I'm not expecting it to be this easy all the time, but we have certainly been blessed with a wonderful start. I credit that to the many prayers that I KNOW have been lifted for us. PLEASE keep those prayers coming!!!!
It was three years ago today that someone left our very precious Callie Beth in the women's restroom in the pediatric section of a hospital. She was a very sick baby, and needed surgery. Luckily, she was found and five days later, received the surgery she needed. We are just blessed beyond words to celebrate the anniversary of her being found with her being placed in our arms to be her FOREVER FAMILY!!!!! God is SO good!!!!
I'm attaching a few pictures of our GOTCHA moment, as well as SISTER times!!!!
