2: Once upon a time... There was a family that had a mommy, a daddy. There was someone missing in their lives........
3: Their dream became a reality........in 2011

They prayed and prayed for the baby and they went to the doctor and saw the baby in the mommy's tummy. They were so excited... They were going to have a new member in their family. A priceless addition...
5: "Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother's womb. I thank you God- You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day." | Psalm..
6: They thanked God every day for the baby. But they had to be very patient. They had to wait 9 months before they could meet her. While they were waiting, they got her room all ready for her.
