Baby Faustina


Mary Faustina Guadalupe Harkins was born on 12/12/12 at 7:17pm on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. She is so sweet and we just love her. More info to come, but here's a fun list of firsts with this baby:

1.  First baby to be born sans meds
2. First home birth
3. First midwife/birth assistant birth
4.  One more surprise, but I will explain that later.

God is so good!  He has answered all our prayers for a good, natural delivery and a healthy baby. He has blessed us beyond our expectations.
