Preparations for the Baptism are underway.

At WINTER PALACE, the staff is working hard, running this way and that.
Angelique is also doing some running.

As she leaves the kitchen in a hurry, she stumbles into Jean's arms.
"Where is the fire?" He laughs as he embraces his lovely wife.

"You're all flushed and what is my wife doing in the kitchen? Don't we have
a full staff to do the cooking?"

"Oh, I was just discussing the menu with Cook. The Baptism is around the corner
and there is still much to do."

"Where are you going in such a rush?" Asked Jean.

"I have to take a shower and dress. I am meeting Ana for some final details."
Jean smiles.

"Why don't you find Pierre and go for a jog or something, OR you can show the staff
where to set up the tables in the garden."

"I think I'll find Pierre and go for a jog." Jean kisses Angie and jogs away.
Angie smiles and runs upstairs.

All the preparations for the Baptism of Grace Belle Dumont have been finalized with great success.

The godparent's role is to read the Profession of Faith on behalf of an infant and help lead the child's faith throughout their life.

In my formal capacity.. I will take great pleasure to be godmother to this beautiful baby Grace....she is so adorable
snuggled in my arms. Little Grace will always have a part of my heart.

Angelique hands her over to me.. she is just awakening.



Pierre will bring certain items that are traditional for the ceremony. This includes a change of clothes for the child, a cross, and three white candles as is customary.. we have material gifts to offer our goddaughter. Our biggest
trove of treasure will be unfailing love, to be at Jean and Angelique's side and to support their role as loving parents,


Angie will soon show the actual christening gown... it is a beautiful heirloom gown. After the ceremony we share
celebrate with great joy and gladness!

This is a Happy Day at Winter Palace.

Angie and Jean are so proud of their little angel.
Grace opens her eyes and looks at Ana who smiles at her
and kisses her head..

Everyone is all dressed up for the occasion....



The baby's white gown is an exact replica of the original gown passed down
the generations, as the material of the original ages after a while.

The guests arrived and the ceremony is about to begin.
Pierre takes his place next to Ana and Grace. Angie and Jean on the other side.

The Blessings begin...

The Blessings have begun. The words are very touching . Angie feels tears of joy.

She reflects on the past year and all that has happened.
She looks at her daughter all snuggled in Ana's arms, and all she could think is
how fortunate she and Jean are to be the proud parents of their little angel.
Grace has brought so much happiness and joy to the entire family. She is the center
of their lives.
Angie notices that Ana too has tears. They smile at each other.
Jean gently squeezes Angie's shoulder for reassurance. "It's over." He whispers.
Angie takes a deep breath. Congratulations are passed along with hugs and kisses.

The ladies take Grace upstairs. They must change for the party.



Angie wears her party dress.

The party takes place in the lovely palace garden.



The flowers this time of year are lovely

The entrees and meal are served



Champagne glasses are clicking in a toast... CHEERS to Grace Belle

It's been an emotional baptism... my eyes well in tears as Angie looks my way... we are both
thinking the same thing. Pierre moves closer, his shoulder lightly touching mine I note his reaction and
empathy. In turn, I hold baby Grace a little tighter.. she is so sweet and has been serene throughout the
ceremony.

I would like to share a blessing for our goddaughter and so recite the following:


‘May the LORD bless you

and keep you;

may the LORD cause His face to shine upon you

and be gracious to you;

may the LORD lift up His countenance toward you

and give you peace.’

Our faith has sustained us every step of the way. There is something
very right in acknowledging the work of God in our lives.

We are seriously taking heed of the declaration of faith as godparents. Jean is emotional as he
watches... without saying a word.. he intuitively ... clasps Angie's hand tighter into his own.

After a lavish dinner, the sweet table was set up.









The party was in full swing. Some guests were eating,
Some drinking and some on the dance floor, dancing
Away until the wee hours of morning.

Everyone had a lovely time. The bands played most of
The night.

Photographers were snapping away, pictures for the
Family album, which Angie and Jean hoped to show little Grace
When she gets older.

Jean held and kissed Angie and said,
“See? You had nothing to worry about. The party was a great success, by the looks
Of our guests.”

“A TOAST “ said Jean clicking his glass with a spoon.
Everyone lifted their glass. “To Duchess Grace”

One week has past since the Baptism. People are still talking about the wonderful
party, and how much fun they've all had.

This morning after breakfast, cousin Nicolais came for a visit.

"Good morning cousin Nicolais. Is something wrong? You don't seem like your usual happy self."
Exclaimed Jean.

"Well, the truth is I came with some news." Angie and Jean are listening, and cannot imagine
what could be bothering cousin Nicolais.

"See? Pierre got a call this morning, something to do with I'm not too sure what. Business or
family emergency or something like that. They are on their way to France as we speak."

"THEY??? Ana left with Pierre without saying a word? I hope it's nothing serious."


"They left in a hurry and Ana promised to call as soon as they arrive in France.
Let's try not to worry too much until we hear some news."

"You're right no use worrying. We were about to have breakfast. Won't you join us Cousin Nicolais?"
"Yes Yes thank you, of course I will. I also want to see little Grace. She will cheer me up."

Opening my eyes... to the brightness of artificial lights makes me feel dizzy and
displaced. Whose body is this and why are there machines beeping with lights
flashing, IV lines crisscrossing every which way? Why I am here? I cannot
remember anything except a loud crash... squealing car tires and then darkness.

I can't even remember my name or the name of the very concerned french gentleman that is visiting and calls me, "Anastasia." His name is Pierre, a distinguished-looking gentleman., a little too excitable. He is charmingly earnest in his endeavors to console me. I appreciate his efforts and smile.


I am informed that the doctor's prognosis is short-term amnesia from a concussion and the stress of a car accident. Nothing would help, but time.

Pierre must have made a very important call to Uncle Nicolais and the rest of the royal family in Russia.

He picked up the phone and asked for Uncle Nicolais .. who was very confused and was taking trips
plans to fly to France immediately.

Angelique and Jean are both shocked by the news ... it looks like their arrival
will also be very imminent. Preparations must be arranged.

In fact ... Pierre had suffered very minor injuries, while they were traveling together in France for vacations and
visit family.

He was shaken but not injured. He was especially very worried about his fiancée ... Anastasia. She has
amnesia ... and hopefully it will be short lived he thought ... Pierre was whispering in Anastasia's ear ... maybe a few words of love he had on the heart will trigger her memory.

Cousin Nicolais received a disturbing phone call from France.

Angie and Jean were playing with Grace, when Cousin Nicolais came running into
the living room.

They both looked up and saw how pale and agitated he looked.
Jean quickly got up to help Cousin into a chair. Angie handed him a glass of cold water.

After he drank, he took a deep breath and started recounting what happened...
"I just had a call from France."
"Who was it?" asked Jean.

"It was Pierre on the phone. He and Ana have been in a car accident."
Angie and Jean both exclaimed, "WHATTTT!!!!!''

"Pierre seems to be alright but he is quite worried about Ana. It seems Ana has
had a concussion and apparently Doctors call it Short Term Amnesia.
Maybe familiar faces will jog her memory, but it will probably take time.''

Angie and Jean are both shocked by the news.

''We must go to her right away.'' Said Jean.
''I have already booked our flight for tonight. We will sleep on the plane
and be there in the morning. I'm anxious to see my Ana.''

Jean Exclaimed, ''Good let's start packing.''
