June 7, 2005: Daniella Marie Joseph, Sleeping Beauty. A blessing to hold, a joy to behold.
2006: Already a seasoned traveler. By the time Daniella was one year old, she has seen Jamaica, Russia, Germany, Haiti, and USA.
2007: A new reality. Sophie's arrival changed things in many ways. She was in awe of Sophie from day one.
2009: Responsibility. I know, she is still too young for this big word. But Daniella has taken up the role of big sister and is playing it very well. In this picture, she and Sophie are on their way to Children's church.
It is very fitting that the 100th post of Josephs' Journal be devoted to wish Happy Birthday to Daniella.
Daniella and Sophie have been the greatest means through which we have witnessed and experienced God's faithfulness in our lives as a family. It seems like only yesterday Lara and I were walking around Wilmore praying and hoping that gravity would move the process along, and praying that God would grant Lara a safe delivery. Four years later, I am up, around the same time we drove to the hospital, reminiscing on God's goodness and keeping Lara company as she diligently labors on completing Daniella's birthday dress.
Daniella has made our joy and made our life complete. With Sophie, our cup runs over. God has been good to us.
