Love Makes a Family

Here are the first pictures of Juliette Rayne, born Saturday night at 11:13.  She weighed 7 lbs. 3 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long.  She’s got a cute little head of hair, and lungs that are working just fine, thankyouverymuch.

It seems as if everything is a go for the adoption to go forward.  The plan right now is that she will be discharged tomorrow, after a brief entrustment ceremony with all the parents and grandparents at the hospital.  Then we go into the period known as “legal risk” which, hopefully, will be all over in a couple of weeks.

This has been such a long journey, but I know it will end well now. This child is such a blessing to everyone.

    Dear Juliette Rayne, I promise to be here for you should you ever need a cranky ol’broads outlook on life. I also promise that should you become enamored with horses, I will teach you to ride, and see the side of equines that I see.

    Much love,
    Auntie Deb

  8. She is absolutely beautiful. We can’t wait for Juliette to visit Florida to see her relatives. I love being a grandmother and I know your mom will too. Be sure to save all your coupons for formula and diapers. Love you.

  9. I am so excited about finally being a grandmother at the young age of 80. I’m working on my next 30 years so I can see Juliette become a beautiful young woman. You and Harold look so natural like you really know what you’re doing. You both are going to make great fathers! Take good care of my little princess. God bless your new family. I’m looking forward to your visit in August.
