Congratulations to my sister and brother in law - they recieved a new bundle of joy with their adopted newborn neice "Chloe". She is a delicate and beautiful sweetheart in our hearts, therefore there are precautions set for her future. For example: If any boyfriends happen to cause heartbreak then they might encounter a roll of duct tape and the underside of 747's wing on an outgoing international flight. Have an awesome day GK!
—Amy Stump
