I'm beginning to realize how often we meet something new in our day-to-day lives. New people, new places, new food, new challenges... so frequently we are being introduced to an unknown.

Sometimes we are changed very little by the experience - it is simply a blip on the day's radar and passes without much more thought.

Other introductions press their way into the frames of our lives, moving walls and setting up residence. These introductions are usually more intense, more difficult, more joyful...

It's my abundant pleasure to introduce Ruby Suzanne Burley - the newest resident in our little world. God gave her to us at 6:10am on February 2, 2011 (in the middle of a blizzard). Our little 21.5 inch, 8lb 2oz bundle has rewritten the fabric of our lives, just as her two beautiful sisters did before her. Nothing will be the same again.
