What a beautiful baby girl! No big surprise because the rest of the family is, also. Emmie Claire, I love that sweet, old-fashion name. She seems to already have Jacob and her Daddy wrapped around her little pinky. Kimen you did good! What a woman of faith. I have never met any of you, but continue to pray God's blessings and healing for your family. Take care and may you always continue to grow in Christ's love.
