Family Comes in all Shapes and Sizes

This weekend, my parents were honored to become godparents again. This time, to the lovely little daughter of a woman from our church. Dad is the naturally talkative sort, and he always welcomes new people to church. This particular young woman attends the same university as I do, but is studying in the nursing program. She came from Ghana with her brother to study here several years ago.

A few weeks ago, she asked my parents to be godparents to her little Audrey. Mom & Dad & Audrey

You can't quite see in the photo, but little Audrey is wearing a necklace and ring made by her uncle in Ghana with her initials on it. Definitely one of the most beautiful gifts to be given to a little one.

My parents and I spent part of Sunday afternoon (after the Baptism Mass) celebrating with Audrey and her family, and it is lovely how the Church brings such a variety of people into the same place.
