Newborn - Alice

I'm not even sure where to begin. Every time I sit down to write this, tears start to fill my eyes. There really are no words to describe how happy I am for my Sister and Brother-in-law. This precious niece of mine has been: dreamed about; prayed for; and loved, for an incredibly long time.
The road to parenthood, hasn’t been an easy one for Tracy and Jeff. In the first 4 years of their marriage, they experienced 10 miscarriages. With a lot of prayer and with a lot of faith, they pressed on. One year and eight months after their 10th miscarriage, on January 12th, 2015, they welcomed their baby girl, Alice, into the world.
 Bravery, selflessness and commitment only begin to describe this beautiful sister of mine. She is one of the strongest people I know. My Brother-in-law has been an incredible husband and has taken care of her through it all. I was blessed with the opportunity to spend a month with them, shortly after Alice was born. It was my absolute pleasure to capture these sweet moments with them and their precious "Rainbow Baby" (as my Sister calls her). They are the cutest parents, and love Alice in such a special way. It is so fun to see my Sister as a Mommy and Jeff as a Daddy. After all those years of seeing them struggle, it is a blessing to finally see them radiate with joy.

Alice is a living testament that prayer is real and miracles exist.
