Meghan's Dedication

Our sweet baby girl, Meghan Clare, was dedicated to the Lord at our church on Sunday. It was a very special time for us, and we're so thankful to God for the gift of Meghan. Here are our pictures from Sunday and the wonderful dedication printed in the bulletin so that our church family could be involved intimately.

Dara and I found the perfect little dress from Strasburg Children for this special day, and she looked precious in it!

So sweet. We love you Little One!

What a joyous day this was! We are so thankful we could be there this weekend to share in Meghan's dedication! The service was so sincere and heartfelt and it warmed my heart to see your church family greet you with such love and affection after her dedication. And what a wonderful church family you have! In three visits we've always felt so welcome there and it always makes it easier to leave again knowing how well you're loved and cared for there in Huntsville. ;-)

Again, thanks so much for having us and we plan to (and with great joy!) love that baby girl just as we've loved, and continue to love, Moira and Ian!

Hugs to each!
