She's here....

Our newest family member arrived yesterday. She was born at 43 weeks 3
days gestation and tipped the scales at 9 pounds exactly. We had our
homebirth as planned, but I'll say right now that the process of
giving life to another through natural birth was beyond any of my
conceptions.

This is a photo of our girls encountering each other for the first
time. Enjoy, and please feel free to bask in the after glow with me. I
can't stop smiling.

Congratulations on a cute baby!

I was just wondering how you became a 3ho Sikh. I have a great desire to become a 3ho Sikh but,don't know how to start the process of converting to Sikhism. Please help me if you can.

Thank you,
