Girl from God

When we were about 20 weeks along in our pregnancy with Savannah, we had an ultrasound, confirming she was indeed female. I was excited. We went and registered that day. I dreamed of pink bows and braids and spend the night parties and frills and makeup and more. When she arrived just 7 weeks later, all I dreamed and prayed for was that she would survive!

Today is her 7th birthday. I can hardly believe it's been that long! From 2 lbs 6 oz. to a healthy 2nd grader, she's a walking miracle. Thank you Lord. Happy Birthday Savannah Malynne (which means "girl from God").

Happy Birthday Savannah (Girl from God) most definately!
