We dedicated Joya on Mother's Day. It was a day full of prayer and reflection for me, as I tried to keep at the front of my mind the fact that I really am Alaina's and Joya's mother. My parents and brother came, and Alaina really enjoyed being up on stage. After the prayer time was over, the auditorium was kind of quiet as the families exited the stage, so the whole congregation could hear Alaina excitedly yelling, "Grammy! Hi Grammy!" Joya got a little bored during the prayer, but I won't hold that against her.
