Copeland Fair Farley

She came to us at 1:00 PM today and she weighs 4 pounds. She is 17 inches long and the most beautiful thing in the world. She is breathing on her own, though she struggles from time to time. God is so faithful-it is like nothing I have ever seen. We still do not know how long she will be with us, but she is here now and I have so much joy in that. She opens her eyes and makes precious noises. Boothe is doing great- she already put her earings and jewelry back on. She looks amazing. We are filled to the brim right now-praise be to God....

Dear Copeland,
We are friends of your mom and dad's, and your birthday is also our wedding anniversary. So, this day will have double-meaning for us from now on, and we are honored to share the day with you. I have watched your mom and dad do amazing things on your behalf as you have grown in your mamma's womb. What a blessing your tiny life is to so many. It's quite overwhelming to see the power of God work so mightily in the tiniest of His creation. God knows no limits and has no boundaries. His faithulness endures forever, and you, my dear, are a blessing beyond words that could ever be written or spoken. While I have yet to meet you face-to-face, I can imagine your beauty and how carefully God has knit you together for His purposes and for His glory. I know that your big sister is proud of her new title and is adoring you already. While all of our days on this earth are numbered, your days are tender, fresh, precious and hand-picked by God. I know that your mom and dad are so proud to hold you in their arms. You are undoubtedly loved beyond measure. Welcome to our world, little one. . . to God be the glory. LLD

" I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19. Happy Birthday to Copeland and much love to all the Farleys from the Howells.
