October 4th, Aleena was baptized. It took her a little longer to be ready than the others kids did. She didn't like the idea of people looking at her and being the center of attention. Instead of interviewing her at the church, the Bishop was very considerate of her and invited us over for dinner so that she would feel a little more comfortable, and he interviewed her at his house.We only invited a few people so that it wouldn't be so scary for her. but word got out and there was more people there than we thought would be. When Aleena saw all the people you could see her countenance fall and visually see her anxiety. Even though it was hard she handled it very well and is a better person for it.
We are so proud of her and the decision that she made to follow the Savior.
