"I Just Met A Girl Named..."

Maria!

Michael and I are pleased to announce the arrival of our beautiful girl, Maria.
I'll probably be MIA from my blog for a few weeks as we adjust to life with our girl, but I'm hoping to bring in a few "guest editors"!
Bless you guys and thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!
xoxo Michael & Joy

  22. Congratulations Joy!!!! She is precious!!! And can I just say a big thank you for sharing this? After everything that happened in October I honestly didn't expect it. Thank you for being so open about it and sharing that with us!

    Enjoy your time with her! It will pass SO quickly! My mom keeps kids (birth-2 yrs) and there is a little boy that stole my heart when he first went to my mom when he was really young and he's now almost 3 and growing like a weed!

    She has two of the best parents who will raise her well, I'm sure!

    Words cannot describe the joy I feel about the birth of your special 'bundle of joy' Maria. So I can only imagine the number of words you need to describe the feeling you have about the birth of your first child, Maria.

    I think you did well on name part. Didn't expect but it's oh so pretty.

    Thank you so much for letting us come this close and sharing something as personal as this.

    Lots of love, joy and happiness for mom, dad and the little girl.

  156. Hi guys :)
    My name is Shawnna Lynn Mitchell and I just wrote this poem a little awhile ago and I hope you like it.

    Children are stars
    Beautiful treasures… gems that are sent by god
    Are angels sent here to teach
    Yet through them learning
    We learn and grow too
    See life in a way that was lost
    Cause through their eyes we have the ability
    To smell the roses
    Look for the little things
    Remembering the sparkles
    In seeing their smiles
    Hearing their laughter
    We are thus reminded to love without boundaries
    Without strings
    All are beyond precious
    Never-ending joys
    May be the less then angels at times
    Yet all seems to disappear
    In given a hug
    A toothless grin
    Or a kiss
    As if to say
    I forever and will always love you
    And I’m glad to be your GIFT!








    Have a great time with your beautiful baby girl!! :) <3
    Love,
    Shawnna Lynn Mitchell
