A LONG JOURNEY...

Emmy Elizabeth is described by her family as a "miracle baby."

Emmy's parents had been trying for years, over seven years, to have a second child. After so much trying, and the pain of several miscarriages, they decided to place their troubles into God's hands. Their church congregation prayed over this family, that they might be blessed with another child. That the journey would end, the wait would be over, the pain replaced with the joy that comes with a new baby.

God does answer prayer. Glory be to HIM, for sweet little Emmy! What a blessing.











This is Emmy with big sister Drew, who is 9. I love the way she is kissing her so gently...






and I love how PROUD she looks in this one:






I saw these old suitcases in their home, and couldn't resist! A perfect ending to a long journey....
