After two little girls, this family swore they were done. Life was good. They were in a good rhythm. Brinnon and Sylvie were no longer napping, and at ages 9 and 5 the family could go on big adventures together. Both girls went with Courtney to the school that she helped to start. The family bought a new house with “the best back yard in Duluth,” plans for an addition were in the works, and Kelly and the girls were building an elaborate tree house in the back.
And then Courtney got pregnant with Emri.
They’ll readily admit that it took a while to warm up to the idea of a new little baby. But the first words out of Sylvie’s mouth when she met Emri in the hospital say it all: “Little baby, you are my dream come true!”
And it’s true. This little girl couldn’t be more loved.
