It’s a Beautiful Life

October 15, 2014 | My Jottings

Our family is so happy to announce

the safe and long-anticipated arrival of…

Miriam Loretta

born October 15, 2014 at 4:59 a.m.

She weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces and is 21.5 inches long.

Daddy Jeremy, Mama Carolyn, Clara, Elijah, Vivienne and Audrey love her so much already, and are all doing well.







I never get used to the wonder of a beautiful new life…I’m giving thanks to the Lord today!
