We were truly blessed this new year with a new addition to our family. Our newborn daughter Lauren was born at 8:25AM on Friday January 4th, 2013 at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, BC. To our surprise, Lauren’s birthday happens to be a very special day for Mandarin folks because the date (2013-01-04) sounds like the phrase, “I will love you forever.” In places like Taiwan and China, there was a rush to get married on January 4th, but for us, having a daughter born on a day with such a special meaning attached made things all the more special.
Mom and baby now home and doing very well. Lauren is a very quiet little girl who sleeps well and has an easy-going personality. It’s been an amazing experience with her and we want to thank all our our friends who have visited with us, and for all the congratulations, gifts, and well wishes. This is one of a handful of photos of baby Lauren taken today at home.
