Metamorphosis - Baby to Bride

She was born on a sunny day in a small hospital on the edge of the Amazon jungle. Here she is, just a few hours old. Good friends came by with a chocolate pie and we had a little party to welcome our third child into the world. I guess we laughed too loudly because a nurse came and told us to quiet down.

And here she is, all grown up, 24 years later, with her brand-new husband.

Happiest of birthdays to our beautiful daughter. You've enriched our lives, added to our joy, and we thank God for you!

Maggie of Normandy Life suggested that I link this post to Metamorphosis Monday - where posts involve an alteration of some sort - usually a craft project. Instead, this metamorphosis features the change from baby to bride!

  4. Oh Lorrie there is no greater joy in the heart of a mother than to see her beautiful little girl grow up into such a stunning young lady. You can be proud and call your life a success because your children have made a fine way in this world. God's blessings on all of you...
    Victorially, Karla
