OUR BABY GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine..." Ephesians 3:20

Praise the Lord!
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
For His loving kindness is everlasting!!!
Psalm 106: 1-2

I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him.
---1 Samuel 1:27

Truly a miracle, she's a gift from above,
with thankful hearts we announce
the adoption of

Sophia (Sophie) Hope

born on September 16th and placed into our arms
through adoption
on September 18th!
She weighted 5lbs and 1 oz. and was 18 1/2 inches long!!!!

Everything happened so quickly. Literally, we got the call from our wonderful agency that we had been chosen and the next day we were holding our precious Sophie! We feel so incredibly blessed. She is perfect and just beautiful in every way!
We just LOVE to sit and stare at her.
Needless to say, we are completely in love with our baby girl.

The boys are in total awe of her too! They want to hold her ALL the time. They realize we have prayed a very long time for a sister and they are so excited that she is finally here!

We have been dying to share our news with the world, but because of legal issues, we had to wait until we had the go ahead from our agency!

Please, if you would, pray for us as we make this life changing transition. Also, and more importantly, would you pray for Sophie's birth family? We are forever grateful to them, but we know they are grieving. Please pray that the Lord would be so very close to them at this time.

We can't wait to share more pictures with you of our sweet baby GIRL!!!!

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord.
Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a HOPE and a future!!!

We praise the Lord for His goodness and His loving kindness towards us!
We are so grateful to Him and for the joy new life brings!!!!

I've been checking your blog every day for the announcement! :) I figured it had something to do with legal issues. I'm so happy that you can now share with the world your beautiful little girl!! :)

And, once again, I can't get over the blond hair...she fits right in!

What wonderful've made my day! I know exactly what you're going through and the overflowing joy and gratitude you are feeling. :) All I can say is the Lord knew what he was doing when he brought her to your family and his timing was perfect, though it may have seemed like a long wait. I will pray for her birth parents! I remember that weighing heavily on my mind too. Though I've never met you I couldn't be happier for you. I look forward to more pics...she's beautiful and a perfect fit to your family. Congratulations!
