We Have A New Baby!

Okay, NO, we don’t have a new baby. Our oldest niece and her husband are foster parents for a new baby girl. I don’t know how long she will be with them. It’s possible I’ll never meet her, as they live in another state. But I’d like to welcome her and congratulate them.

I’ve decided to send this sweet quilt in celebration. On the label I’ll use her first name and middle name — her last name might change. And with luck it will be something she’ll have, always.

Quilt is about 51″x40″.

    Beautiful quilt for a lucky little girl – to have your niece and her husband love on her while she waits for her forever home. It is so wonderful to hear about the good foster parents…the news only wants to highlight the bad ones. Bless them!!

    What a delightful experience, all the way around. The willingness to foster children is very special, and it’s wonderful that the little one will have such a treasure from this time in her life.

    Darling quilt. It sounds like she’s one lucky little lady to have your niece and her husband to care for her. I wish them the best.

      I didn’t make it FOR her, but I made it knowing it would go to someone special. Our niece and her husband are BEST people, you know, ones who live their faith in a very intentional way.
