On the link given by the previous poster, who did a very good job of finding her,
Ragnhild Bjørg (her first and middle name) is entry number 59, and on the lower half of the page of baptisms.
Born 2 Aug. 1923, baptised 14 October 1923, Ragnhild Bjørg, daughter of carpenter Ragnar Antone Pedersen, and his wife Bergljot Ragnhild Berg Peterson, they are living at a place that looks like Steiro, and there is a notation that the family went to Tacoma, USA.
Both of Ragnhild Bjorg's parents are born about 1899 according to this baptism record.
baptismal sponsors look like Andreas Thomasen and his wife Ellida Steiro, bachelor Johannes Berg, and Styrmand (a sailing job which means steer man literally) ?? P. Bø.
The birth is ekte = legitimate.
The parents should be on the census of 1900 in Norway and also on 1910.
The parish records link online is from the website that is the Digital Archives website from the University of Bergen. It is an actual scan of the parish records. The source of that record is:
Nordland fylke, Sortland i Sortland, Ministerialbok nr. 895A09 (1915-1925), Fødte og døpte 1923, side 91.
which means: Nordland County, Sortland in Sortland (Sortland parish in Sortland municipality?) Ministerial book number 895A09, (1915-1925) the section of Births and Baptisms, page 91. That record can also be seen on microfilm, if you live near a LDS (Latter Day Saints) research center (usually in most LDS churches) they can send for the microfilm for you. But in this case, the online scan is just as well.)
The link below is the one given by the previous poster.

The father Ragnar Antoni Pedersen Steiro left Norway in the spring of 1923, I find him on the emigration record leaving the port of Trondheim. http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbas...
He is traveling with a couple from Sortland also,

He left Sortland April 21, 1923, and the ship left Trondheim 22 May 1923. The notation on Ragnhild Bjorg's baptism must indicate that the father is in Tacoma, Washington. Ragnar Antoni Pedersen Steiro (farm name) unmarried (not accurate?) carpenter, male.
The other people he emigrated with:

If they (Ragnar and Bergljot) were married in Sortland before the birth of the daughter Ragnhild it should be in those parish record books. The parish record says it was a legitimate birth for Ragnhild. And those were kept by the minister, who would know. ??
