I am the Aunt to a brand new baby girl named Brooklyn Grace. I skipped my classes today, but ironically enough, the birth room looks out over my campus....so there really was no getting away from school today. She is a beautiful tiny one, weighing in at 5 lbs, 8 oz. The miracle of life never ceases to astound me. And how she comes out of her mother's womb, knowing her mother's voice and knowing her mother's scent is mindboggling.
So, a toast to Brooklyn...May you grow to be a strong woman full of grace and integrity.
