Welcome to the world Juliana Grace

Last night I had the blessing of being able to observe and photograph one of Gods beautiful miracles in action. I have  had 3 children and have seen a c-section during nursing school, but there is absolutely nothing like watching a live, natural birth the way God intended it to be. I laughed and I cried all at once! I am so thankful to our friend Lisa for allowing me to be part of such a special day. Julianna Grace was welcomed into the world on 7-7-11 at 9:25 pm. She weighed 8 Ibs and 2.8 ozs. She was welcomed by her 6 beautiful siblings with open arms! Mrs. Lisa you were a CHAMP! Congrats on your beautiful gift from God, Juliana Grace!

Lisa happens to LOVE Kari Jobe and had her song, “You are for me” playing during the whole labor and delivery process!
