Ocean Grace Santiago is now 3 months old

She has already met with the President of Panama

With photos

Ocean Grace Santiago was born Friday, November 23, 2007, at 7:01am to Christian and Bliss Cravens Santiago or Panama City, Panama.

Ocean Grace seems quite taken with life in Panama City, Panama. And Panama City, Panama seems quite taken with her. Already she and her Mom and Dad have met with the President of Panama, President Martin Torrijos, who looked favorably on the beautiful child.

On her Kentucky side, she is the great, great granddaughter of the late Fronia and Granville Cravens of Sano and the late Audrey and E.P. Waggener of Columbia, KY; the great granddaughter of Jean and the late Dr. Paul J. Cravens of Columbia, Sano, and Indianapolis; and the granddaughter of Don and Elaine Cravens, of Indianapolis and Tampa, FL. And she is the cousin, niece, or great niece of several dozen of the Adair County Cravens and Waggener diaspora.

Her grandfather Cravens says it's alright to visit Ocean Grace's website. He wrote, "We have no problem sharing with anyone who would like to gaze upon the beauty that is Ocean Grace. Yes, we are mighty proud of her, and of Bliss as well, for designing such a cool site to navigate! The stories she writes are also very entertaining, as you may have discovered already. Hope everyone who reads Columbia Magazine enjoys the trek to Panama and a peek into the Santiago's baby adventure! Love to all those proud supporters in Adair County," s/Don"

If you visit Ocean Grace and arrive from Columbia in Panama City in 600 miles, you've gotten the wrong directions in Nashville and have ended up in Florida. She is in the other Panama City. The capital of Panama, the country, which is some 2,000 miles south of Adair County.

We're terribly proud of Ocean Grace in Adair County, too. -EW.
