Evelyn's Baptism

At first, she wasn't so sure about being baptized.  

But she eventually warmed up to the idea.  

Evelyn joined our Church on April 7, 2013 - Divine Mercy Sunday - at Our Lady of Grace in San Antonio by Fr. Jon Felux.  Her Godparents are Dave and Elizabeth.

It was such a beautiful day that I will never forget.  On the drive to San Antonio, Michael and I talked about what we hope for her in her faith journey.  Michael spoke about how he always hopes that her life is centered around God and that she is strongly rooted in her faith.  My hope is that she will have a sincere and true faith.  Not something that just helps her to "be good" and "follow the rules," but a passionate love that defines her.  

Evelyn has such a strong support system to help her along on this journey.  Her godparents are dedicated to helping us raise her in the faith and leading by example.  We are so proud.  

We had a lovely reception at Joe and Casey's house.  They were so kind to host the celebration for Evy's big day and it was absolutely perfect!
