1: Brynn, we praise God for your safe and perfect arrival. God blessed us with you, a beautiful little girl both inside and out. We pray for you every day, from the moment we knew that we were expecting you. That you will love God with your whole heart and have an intense desire to share your love of Him with the people around you. We also pray that you will have a strong self confidence. And that you will be filled with peace and joy. Brynn, you bring joy to our lives already in the short time you've been with us and we can't wait to see what God has in store for your life. We know that you, in his strength, will do great things. We love you and will forever. | Our beautiful Brynn
