July 11., 2011 will always be a very special day in my life. It is the day I smiled even though I was going through some changed in my life. I have always said to be thankful for small mercies but on this day we received a big mercy... the birth a a baby girl. Maija Aurora entered this world in the evening of the 11th and I was pleased to learn that our family had grown with the presence of one more girl. I know something special happened that day and I know that I will carry it in my heart for the rest of my life.
Thanks be to God. Our heavenly Father has blessed us and me in particular with a purpose to continue this life.
God bless this little girl as she makes her way into this world.
