The 5th Belongs to Calvin: Calvin Loves Kimora (updates below)

This month’s 5th is dedicated to Calvin’s cousin, Kimora Michaela, who was born two months after Calvin’s first birthday. One year ago, I posted about Kimora and her family: first to ask for prayers when Raquel went into labor at 32 weeks, then to give an update and ask for…

Three babies in heaven
