Meet Ivey Mariposa Weldon
Ivey - named after her great, great grandmother
Mariposa - meaning butterfly in Spanish - named after our beautiful friend Laura who we lost unexpectedly almost 3 years ago. Laura left quite an impression on our life - and even gave me my 2 godchildren. We all see butterflies since she passed and we wanted our daughter to always know about her.
Born 6/6/13 In the beautiful city of Birmingham, Alabama
7 lbs 6.7 oz
20 and 3/4 inches long
After shuffling around the house trying to do some quick cleaning and oh yeah get some sleep we left Wednesday morning. Arriving in Birmingham with schnauzers in tow we are first greeting by our awesome friend Amanda (who found me on Instagram and told us about family adoption services- more on this special soul later) she filmed us walking in and meeting our daughter for the first time. We will have video and photos to share later.
Laying eyes on Ivey for the first time erased the last 9 years. All of this wait was for her. She is the most beautiful thing we have ever seen.
Here she is with her aunt Amanda
We just sat in amazement and watched our daughter who had been surrounded by love from the moment she was born. It all felt surreal.....
But she is ours.
Will come back soon for the rest of the story. Feeling very blessed. Corey and I are so lucky.
We love each of you.
And many more photos to come. You might stop following me on Instagram and Facebook lol
