Introducing Teresa Marie Liberto...


Our daughter, Teresa Marie Liberto, was born this past Saturday, Valentine's Day, at 4:33 pm, weighing 7 pounds and 11 ounces. She’s 20 inches long, successfully breastfeeding, and displays a wide repertoire of facial expressions.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers as we really needed them on Saturday. God provided strength to Frances through 14 hours of hard labor, 3 hours of pushing, and choosing not to use pain medications. It was only by God's grace and His amazing gift to women to bear children that our daughter was born without complications. Praise be to the Lord.

Videos and pics will follow. Frances will return to posting soon. Peace be with you.
