She is one week old today, and already has captured our hearts. Of course, she did get off to a great start with mom and dad by coming five days early!
Last Friday, November 21, at 6:44pm, we welcomed Miss Gloria Haven Mathis to our family, and her arrival has made for the most wonderful Thanksgiving week of our lives. We are unspeakably grateful to God for her life and the gift she is to us already.
Carson and Coleman got their wish for a sister, and they have begun the adjustment to being big brothers.
Also, it’s been a great joy this week introducing Gloria to friends and family alike.
For more, we posted a video on Facebook last Saturday night with some highlights from Gloria’s first 24 hours. Yes, with the Christmas season upon us, it’s the right time to be singing Gloria in excelsis Deo!
More to come soon on why the name Gloria Haven…
