Welcome, Sharlet!

My brother's daughter was born this morning, Sharlet Lyn Rademaker. 8 1/2 pounds and perfectly healthy. Isn't she beautiful?! She looks just like my brother. I have to wait a few more weeks before I can get my hands on her, but for now I'll just pray for her and love her from a distance.

Dad, bless this little lady. Cover her under your wing and protect her. Annoint her with the oil of gladness. May she stride by your side all the days of her life, knowing how powerful you are and how much you love her. May she one day become a woman after your own heart, a woman of honor and truth. Thank you, Dad, for this dear gift. Bless her and keep her forever.
