From family email March 14, 2004:
Dear friends and family:
Garren and I couldn’t wait to show you pictures of our newest addition. Gracie is wonderful and we are so happy to have her home. We are sorry you had to wait so long for photos; we know that everyone wants to see her. But, I am sure you can understand that life around here is a little busy.
Thank you all for your sweet emails and cards. We appreciate all of you and will try to keep you updated, and send more pictures.
Tabitha Grace Shipley was born March 5, 2004. She weighed in at 7lbs, 11oz, 22 in. We’re all home and on the mend. Hope you enjoy these photos.
