1: "A precious baby has come from above to live in your hearts and fill them with love."
2: This is the story of how you came to our family. We were so excited when we got the call from the agency saying a family had picked us to adopt their baby girl. They told us the birth parents were from Louisiana. Their names are Becca and Andrew. They couldn't take care of a baby and wanted to give her more. We were so excited to talk to them for the first time! We flew down to meet them in January 2011. They were both very fun people to be around. We talked about a lot of things with them. They asked what name we were thinking of naming you. When we told them Brielle they said that was the name that they liked and would have used too! It was the best day of our lives when we got to go down to Louisiana and see you when you were born! We put together this book so you know where you came from and how loved you are.
3: These are the first pictures we got to see of your birth family the Henney's. We texted a lot during the 3 months we waited for you.
4: This is the Henney's little girl Bailey. She is 2 years old here. We got to spend a lot of time with them while you were in the hospital.
5: We had to stay in Louisiana for a long time waiting on paperwork. So we went and visited the Henney's often. Bailey held you and said you were a pretty baby!
6: "Twinkle twinkle little star; do you know how loved you are?"
7: You were born on Tuesday March 1st at 5:26pm. We were anxiously waiting in the waiting room for you to come. As soon as we could we rushed in to see you!!

12: We got to take you home from the hospital on March 3rd around 5:00pm! We had been waiting all day for the pediatrician to come check you out and make sure you were ok to go home.
15: We were so excited to finally have you Brielle!. We took a million pictures of you!
16: A Baby Is A Bit Of Stardust Blown From Heaven | You had jaundice a few days after you were born. A way to help with that was getting you in the sun. We went with the Henney's to a park to let you soak in some sun rays!
19: Mardi Gras was a week after you were born. Everyone takes the day off to go to the parades. We couldn't take you to the parades so we watched it on t.v. And of course we got you some beads!!!

24: We got to bring you home to Utah on March 19th which is Grandpa Singleton's birthday! We were nervous to bring you home on the airplane but you did just fine! You slept the whole time! Everyone was so excited to get to see you and hold you! Our house was all decorated for you too!
