Jill said...

We are rejoicing with your family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beck, Helen and Will's Mom said...

I've never commented before but I've been checking in on your family since you brought precious Quint home. I just HAD to finally speak up and say congratulations to you and your beautiful family on the referral sweet Kiera Joy! She is amazing! Love her birthday...that is the day we met our little boy in Ethiopia this last summer! God is good! So happy for you! Can't wait to continue to follow your journey!

Catherine said...

Oh Christie!!! Keira Joy is absolutely beautiful and oh so precious! What a wonderful treasure and blessing that she is so young! Hannah was 5 1/2 months at referral!

Absolutely thrilled for you friend! Congratulations!!!

Melanie said...

She is GORGEOUS! Congratulations!

Valerie said...

What do you say to someone who has just received a gift from Heaven? G*D knew exactly what he was doing with this seemingly long wait. It produced Quint and now his gorgeous sister Keira. What an amazing family you will be. Keira, you have been loved and thought of and yearned for and cried over before you were even born. You are the piece that completes this puzzle.

I can't wait to hold you and call you neice.

Love Aunt Valerie.

Jennifer said...

Quint's little sister is beautiful!!!! Congrats!!!!
