Anna Rose Soares
7 lbs 8oz
At Lucille Packard's Children's Hospital, Palo Alto
About My Name:
Anna Rose was given two Portuguese names because her grandpa is full Portuguese (which may also account for the very dark hair).
<![if !vml]><![endif]>Anna means "Grace of God" and reminds us how generous the Lord is to bless us despite our shortcomings.
Rose was for Anna's great grandmother that passed away in 1998 and rests in peace a few miles from Anna's home.
