On Tuesday, January 22nd at 8:47pm, as Deanna squeezed my hand while I wiped away the tears from her tightly shut eyes, I relayed the words, “She’s here! Our baby girl is finally here.” From that moment, everything I knew about myself and my family changed. I watched as my tiny daughter struggled to open her eyes for the first time, within seconds of being placed in my arms. I witnessed the instant calm that came over her when she was placed on upon Deanna’s chest. And I saw Hannah assume the role of “big sister” with the greatest of ease. At 8:47pm on the eve of January 22, 2008, Addison Elizabeth Brett was born.
Thanks to all who have already passed words of congratulations our way via Facebook, Flickr and Twitter. 🙂
