“Hi! You did a consultation for us 3 years ago and we ended up with Damien Edmund. We were always going to name a second daughter Helena and I had a baby girl on Saturday. We can’t believe God gave us our Helena Mary on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross! Isn’t that perfect?!“
Perfect indeed!! For those who aren’t familiar, St. Helena is credited with finding the True Cross in the fourth century, and the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross celebrates that discovery! Amazing!
Congratulations to Kara and her husband and big siblings Rosamond, Matthias, Simeon, and Damien, and happy birthday Baby Helena!!
