Some days are just really big blessings. Yesterday was definitely one of those days especially for my older brother Mike and his wife Shawna.

You see, just over two years ago, Mike and Shawna were expecting a baby girl. They had already picked out a name, Trinity, and were more than ready for her to be home. Sadly. that moment never came. Prior to her delivery date Trinity passed away.

It left many in our family so very saddened. Mike and Shawna never gave up hope though. They knew that God was good and they could trust him.

That trust led to yesterday. Shawna delivered a beautiful, healthy, 6 pound, 7 ounce, 18 inch baby boy, and named him Dakota Michael Lee Bouché. He carries the name of his father and also my father, who passed away almost six years ago.

I am just so thankful. Our family has seen a lot of pain and days like these are just so beautiful. I praise God for just how amazing he is and that baby Dakota grows strong in him.

Here are just a few of my favorite photos from Dakota’s big day.
