This is Kevin, Cody ( in the back), Heidi, and baby Cortney Lee Dawson. Cortney arrived on June 29th, she weighed in at 8 pounds 9 ounces and was 21 inches long. The first Sunday after her birth her parents had her in church. It happened to be communion Sunday. As we were at the altar receiving comunion, her grandmother, Betty Jo Dawson, touched a piece of bread that had been dipped in the juice to her lips.
She is the first baby born on the Mount Airy Charge in a lot of years. This is a very special occasion for us all and everyone is happy for Kevin and Heidi. I love hearing baby noises, that includes fussing, in church. It reminds me of new life, Jesus receiving the little children, that we're supposed to be childlike in our faith, and so much more.
