Congratulations!!! She looks so perfect as part of your family
Crying happy tears. These photos convey SO MUCH LOVE. xxx
My husband just walked in and asked, "What's making you so happy?" I hadn't realized I was smiling from ear to ear as I was looking at your wonderful family!
So much love.:)
Such tender moments. Congratulations! You are correct... pictures speak volumes... No words necessary.
i love the picture of nolan with natalie in the high chair..it's sooo cute how they are looking at each other.. and the next one...oh my, how oliver smiles at his new sister...such a cutie!! i wonder if he notices that she's got the extra chromosome just like he :-)
Great to see your little girl is home. God is good! Love following your family. I've been following since Dennis. Congrats!
Oh my goodness! I am crying tears of joy too!! Those photos speak loud and clear........everyone is so happy. She looks very relaxed and now she is home she is going to just thrive. God bless you allMarilyn from Canada
I just have to add that the photo of Natalie and Nolan looking into each other's eyes is just about the most beautiful photo I have ever seen :-)Marilyn from Canada
She's surrounded by love!
So happy that you all are home safe and sound:) What a blessing she is to your family! I noticed that Nolan is wearing a bone conduction hearing aid. They have something called a BAHA softband that several of the children I work with wear. They are a soft, cozy elastic headband with cool designs (cars, trains). Just an FYI because it is more comfortable than others.Happy Thanksgiving to the Reed family:)Susan from Boston
How wonderful! Happy tears, congratulations!
Beautiful! God bless you and your precious family. Thank you for sharing such a special moment.
Such wonderful news!
Hi! I love the way that Oliver is looking at Young precious daughter. He looks so watchful of her. Blessings, Pat
oh my goodness - so much love, and holding and hugging - she will blossom in no time!
AHHH i love that picture of Nolan with Natalie :D
So good to see her home!
Crying happy tears here too. Beautiful photos of your beautiful family.Thank You Jesus for bringing this sweet little one home forever!--Sarah
SO nice to see Natalie home, surrounded by so much love! I also especially LOVE the picture where she and Nolan are looking into each other's eyes. They seem to be communicating -- I think he's telling her that everything's going to be okay now. :) Thanks for sharing!
AWWW Look how excited Nolan is with his new baby sister!!!How is she adapting to her new and very big family??
I'm so happy that you and Natalie are home safely! What a beautiful welcome from the other children. I love the photo of her with Nolan. They look physically so much like brother and sister! It's obvious all the kids love Natalie already. :) samm
One thing is pretty clear. She'll get plenty of love!
She looks so peaceful and relaxed.I am glad that she has a family now.
What a darling addition to your already beautiful family! Congratulations, Christine (and family)!-- Sonia
No words needed....brought tears to my eyes. So grateful that she is finally home...cant wait to see her blossoming surrounded by an abundance of love.
Its amazing to see all the kids gloating over their new baby sister! Look at that last pic of Ollie and Alex with her, Ollies face is so priceless and cute. I was wondering...I know Oliver has DS but he seems to have it very mildly, honestly compared to a lot of other kids I've worked with in special ed classes that have DS, just looking at him I wouldn't immediately think he had DS. Besides he's adorable as heck lol. I was wondering to what degree Natalie has it? She looks very lost in her own world :( I blame that on the lack of attention she's gotten for 3 years of her life as opposed to Oliver whom you've had since he was a little guy.
I find your comments so inspiring! Thanks for visiting our family blog, and sharing your thoughts.
