The first time Amy held Anabelle. 

No pictures please!

Our little bundle of joy!

Thank you, Lord. For this child we prayed and God has heard our cry.

Anabelle Grace Zarate was born at 12:53 p.m. She weighed in at 6 lbs. and 9 oz. She measured 20 1/4 in. long. Thank you for your prayers. More pics up in the next few days.
