In Case You Were Wondering...

Beautiful Olivia Marie was born yesterday, June 26th around 7:00 in the morning

I teared up as I soaked in these beautiful pictures that Ryan posted to facebook.

Seriously, is this not the most precious moment ever?
 The proud papa, holding his little girl.
I wished I didn't live so far so that I could swoon, snuggle, and love on this little girl. And tell her how loved she is by so many different people across states and countries.
What an incredible journey their family has been on, and I'm so grateful for beautiful moments like this that remind me that life, no matter how tough, is truly amazing.

Congrats again Shannon and Ryan! I hope you find the time to sleep, at least a little bit ;).

Kara! I love you! Thank you for celebrating with us! It has been such an amazing, sacred time. We are in awe of this process. It is so emotionally overwhelming...the highest of highs and the lowest of really is all a miracle. I promise to post more about it soon! I love your guts, and good luck these last few weeks! Can't wait to meet baby boy Barnard, and to hear his name!
