Here is Ashanti wearing
the Kanga her birth mother made for her. She is also wearing a
hand made necklace made of nuts and herbs. They are worn for good
fortune and prosperity.

were custom mixed for a one of a kind baby. She has shading and
mottling on her skin for depth. The creases on her chubby limbs

Congratulations to her new
mommy Erika Kirk of Chandler, AZ
