True Elio Orlando
Born Sunday, Oct 3rd
7lbs, 7oz, 7:30pm
18.5 inches longTrue as in true love, truth (and how it sets us free), always staying true (our internal true compass), and all things true, true, true.
Elio (elle-e-o) because we love it.
Orlando because Orlando Roberts was a very special patriarch of a very special family.

We arrived home today from the hospital and we are totally and insanely blissed out with our son. Thank you so much for all the blessings. We are so grateful and full of love in ways we’ve never felt before…..thank you to our families, our friends, and to those of you who have been holding us close in your thoughts. We are so, so grateful.

We’ll be back soon with more photos and one birth story that started and ended almost exactly 24 hours later with the wondrous birth of baby True. It’s quite a tale but we’re all happy and healthy and I can’t think of any better outcome. Life is beautiful.

Kelly Rae + John + True

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.
