Mariah Grace is born

Friday January 16th our daughter was born!!! SHe weighed in at 6lbs. 11 oz. and was 18 1/2 inches long. She is healthy and doing well. She is in foster care until we can go down there. Well, we could go down there but the mom can still change her mind up until court date. (I will let you know when court date is.) We don't want to risk being with her and not being able to bring her home. She was having problems with her formula so she was switched to Lactose Free formula. That is the only problems so far.
If you know that all along we had named her Malaia Grace from the start of this journey. When the social worker told me the name her birth mom had put on her birth certificate, we decided to keep her given first name and add our own middle name. We thought that was special letting her have the name her mom that gave her birth had given her...
We will keep you posted!
