Kaylin Beth's Baptism!

On February 26th, our beautiful little girl was baptized at our church. Thankfully, she didn't cry or fuss during what is normally her nap time. We were privileged to be able to share in the moment with not only our parents and siblings, but also Kaylin's birth family. The video below was filmed by Kaylin's birth uncle. (Thanks TJ!)

"See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are."

Precious Little Kaylin

Below is a beautiful poem written by Kaylin's birth grandmother.

Precious Little Kaylin

Precious little Kaylin, a gift from God above
An angel sent from heaven, uniting families in their love
Our Father of the universe, ordained you long ago
He gave you exceptional parents, to guide you as you grow

Your daddy shows a wealth of strength and a boldness of his own
Your mommy shines with love and care -- characteristics that are grown
You have a special birth mom, who loves you with her life
She's bright and walks with confidence, finding blessings from her strife

No doubt you'll be a blend of these, as well as so much more
I pray you heed their teachings of what life will have in store
Your story may be different from others that you know
A testimony filled with love, that you alone will show

I pray that as your life unfolds, that God will be your core
And you will never have a doubt, how much you are adored
The Lord will guide you every day, with His mercy, grace, and love
And you our precious Kaylin, have already glorified Him above
