Joaquin was baptised on December 21st at Sacred Heart Church in Sacramento. Many of our friends and family were with us to celebrate this special day. Jose and Virginia are dear friends of ours and we are so happy they agreed to be Joaquin's Godparents. Hector and Jose have been friends for a long time when they met in Mexico City. They are a very special couple, so full of love, and they have always been so kind and caring to all of our children.

Joaquin wore a baptismal gown that was handed down by my Aunt Giovanna from Italy. It is over 50 years old and was handmade in Italy. All three of our boys were baptised in it. It's the only time our boys have worn a "gown" and all three of them looked beautiful in it. Little porcelain dolls.

We had a beautiful brunch after the ceremony at my parents house. Even with the rain, it was a perfect day.

We are so grateful to God for giving us the gift of our son Joaquin.
