I have waited for this little precious girl to be born for 13 years. I can clearly remember her mommy, then single, telling me how she felt the greatest calling on her life was to be a mommy. If the 13 years wasn’t a long enough wait, this baby girl decided to also be 10 days late. Each day for the last month of the pregnancy I was on pins and needles anxious for “the call” She even had us all waiting during delivery taking her own time. I then had to wait a whole 10 days before I got my hands on her. She though, without a doubt was worth the wait and a gift from God. I know there were many moments in the last 13 years that her mommy wonder if that calling would ever come to reality. I can clearly remembering praying for and with my best friend that God would guide and direct her, even with this huge longing. I know for Anna holding her daughter is a fulfillment of her heart’s cry. Oh precious Ryn, you were are a fulfillment of a dream God whispered to your mommy since she was a little girl. To hold you, love you and photograph you was nothing short of joy.
