One of Mark's oldest sisters was diagnosed with liver cancer (bile duct cancer) over 3 years ago. She found out in July of 2010 and on August 25, 2010 she passed away at the age of 41. Her name was Sarah and Mark had said that IF we ever have another baby girl we would name her Sarah. So the decision was made, our newest addition was going to be named after one of the most beautiful people I have ever known. We decided to drop the "h"since all of our children have 4 letter names. That way she could be named after her Auntie Sarah but still have her own identity. Her middle name came from her Reece's Rainbow name which was Susan and Susan means Lily. So on September 20, 2012 she became Sara Lily Lutkin. This is was her "birth announcement" we posted on that day.
Hear ye, hear ye, gather around.
Our royal highness has been found.
Another Princess to share the throne.
We're happy to call her our very own!
Sara Lily Lutkin
Here are a couple of videos of our hospital visit. It felt great to have her back in our arms. I love the tender moments that she had with her daddy. I am not sure if she remembered us but I like to think so. I think she remembered the love that she felt and was happy to feel it again.
Today will always be remembered as a day of hope. We had hoped that the judge would say yes and hoped that our Sara Lily would never feel alone again. Our hopes and prayers were answered and she officially became part of a family. I am still in awe that we are that family! She fills a place in my heart and it overflows with so much love! Sara Lily was always meant to be and will forever be mine.
Pics taken last night. Before and after spaghetti!
Golly Gee! I am one lucky mama!
