Hello Ben & Carissa,
This is Amparo (Franco) Pennington. My husband and I are kind of foreign to the blog world, but I have recently been introduced to your sweet family blog thru viewing another NBBC friend's blog. At any rate, I just wanted to congratulate you both for the beautiful baby girl the Lord has recently given you. Your two boys are so precious too! Full of energy, I'm sure. It's wonderful to read and see what the Lord has been doing in your lives! May the Lord bless you and His grace be with you. I will be praying for you guys. Take care!
