The Proudest Day

Michelle Zakaria was born at 6:57pm (that was the correct time, though the St Peters clock said 7:01pm and that’s what they recorded) on August 12 at Saint Peters University Hospital, New Brunswick, NJ. She weighs 6 pounds 9 ounces (3 kg) and is 20.5 inches (52 cm) long. She is healthy and the most beautiful baby ever.

Amber is happy but extremely tired. I can’t contain my excitement.

  1. We are a happy grand family. Allah has blessed us with an angel (daughter), Michelle. May Allah bless Michelle and her parents with good health, thorough happiness and prosperity. Aaameen.

  2. I’m on cloud nine 🙂

    Give my angel lots of love from me – her one and only aunt 😉

    I wish I could be physically present there. Hopefully I’ll be able to see her soon.

  3. ألف ألف مبروك على المولودة الجميلة “ميشيل” عسى أن تربى في عز والديها وأن تعمر البيت بالفرح والهناء آمين.
