introducing my niece . . .

Camera phone photo sent by my brother.

Yes, officially! This is the newest member of our family, Hope, who was born April 28th. Her dad is my youngest brother, just confirmed with a handy-dandy DNA test (a long story which I won't go into here, but he and the mother are friends but no longer in a relationship). I haven't met Hope in person yet, since I didn't want to get attached until we knew for sure . . . but now nothing is in my way! Let me at her!

I'll be going home over July 4th weekend, so I'll get to hold her and take lots of photos of her. I can't wait!

P.S. Just look at all her big wild hair . . . she's my niece for sure!

Hope is absolutely stunning - and I have to agree with Donna. The big hair should have been a pretty big clue. ;o)


Congrats, Auntie Lisa!

How luck she is to have you for an Auntie. I expect you will be around a bit more frequently? :)
