As many of you know.. my sister-in-law (Elizabeth) and her hubby Jason have been in the process of adopting their first baby. After many months of "maybes" there has been an AMAZING thing happen. Someone near by found them and the rest as they say, is history. We've been waiting on the birth of baby girl Jenkins. Well, YESTERDAY - EASTER SUNDAY she arrived!
Her name is Allie Grace Jenkins. Allie is named after Elizabeth's Great Aunt (Their Grand-Daddy's sister) Grace was chosen because she's the result of GOD'S GRACE & PROVISION for this sweet couple.
She weighed 6 pounds and 8 ounces. She's 21 inches long and I hear she has a head FULL of hair! Oh, I can't WAIT to meet her!
There is a 72 hour waiting period in the state of Mississippi - after that it's all legal. (We're almost 13 hours into it now) Please pray with us for a smooth transition and many years to come with this beautiful HEALTHY baby girl.
I'll post pictures as soon as I can. I hope to get to go to the hospital today. I'm SO EXCITED to meet this sweet baby girl! Wait, I said that already... LOL! I can't help it... I'm EXCITED!!
