This is Hensley Grace. She is my new niece that was born on September 12th. Due to the displacement caused by the power surge and the surgery soon following that, I haven't had the chance to introduce her to you until now. But, she was worth the wait, wasn't she?
Sweet Hensley is also the recipient of much prayer. The doctors were concerned about her size since her first sonogram. They prepared my dear sister, Ashley, and her precious husband, Brian, for the worst since then. Isn't God good?
She is lovely. Tiny, but lovely. She tipped the scales at just over 5 pounds, but she has steadily gained weight and she is perfectly healthy. Hensley was so excited to get out and see her sweet family that she came 3 weeks early. But her parents were wise, and insisted that the doctors induce then, following some unusual events. This is Hensley's family at swimming lessons this summer. Cute, Godly family.
I've had the privilege of seeing Hensley every single day for the past week. She's staying at home with her mom right now, who is one of my marvelous caretakers.
Babies are so sweet. They are good for the soul!
