Reese Catherine Rowe ~ 8.11.09

Thank you all very much for your prayers. We desperately need them. I know there is a lot of information about Reese going around right now. I don't have the strength to go into any details, but I definitely want to share pictures of my beautiful baby girl. ; )

August 11, 2009
Happy Birthday, Reese!

Our baby girl

Isn't she beautiful?

Our "small fry"

Jason, me, & Reese



Look who came to cheer me up today!? I have a feeling this little guy is going to keep me going these next few days, weeks, and months. He sure makes me smile. ; )



Jason holding his daughter for the first time


"For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be."
Psalm 139:13 - 16

She is beautiful! I've been praying for you guys! I'm honored that she shares my birthday with me!
