White, Amelia

Congratulations! If you are reading this, then you have probably just had a beautiful baby placed in your arms. What a miracle and gift from God! In Psalm 139:13-14, it says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb, I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Amelia has added so much joy to our family.

And oh, how I know full well that His works are wonderful. Our sweet Amelia was born August 2011. We did not know that the road we have gone down existed, but how grateful and blessed we have been to be on this journey. There are countless numbers of people we have met because of Amelia, that have not just become friends, but who are now a part of our family.


Amelia adores her big sister Abigail. She is her constant sidekick. They are each other’s biggest fans. They can be found having dance parties and singing at the top of their lungs, painting nails, playing school, jumping on the trampoline, playing soccer, or cuddling up in a chair reading books.

Some of Amelia’s favorite things to do are go to church, school, and attend ballet class. She loves playing with friends, riding in Pa Pa’s golf cart, going to the park, playing and reading with her grandmothers, swimming, playing in the sand, and trips to Chick-fil-A. She is always the first to make a friend and the first to comfort you and give a hug.

Amelia has added so much joy to our family. Her sense of humor keeps us laughing, and her tenacity motivates us. She has taught us to love without borders, and to look beyond the surface of others. Her enthusiasm and energy for life spurs us on to want to live life to the fullest just as she does. Just as Psalm 139:13-14 states, “His works are wonderful and we know that full well …” because of Amelia!!
