Hannah Ruth was born at home on December 19th, 1989 at 6:54 a.m. We all celebrated with happy tears that snowy winter morning. I wrote out her birth certificate by hand at the kitchen table that morning. Her name means grace and favor. She has the grace of God on her and her favor and beauty are from the Lord. She has been such a delight to me since I first held her beside the Christmas tree that Christmas night. My heart was so happy when she was born I was inspired to write a poem about it.
