WE HAVE A DAUGHTER !!!!

Got a call today that we have a daughter !!!!! I just filled out the custody papers and Fed Exp them to Uganda today ... Not sure how much information I can share yet, but she is two years old and when you find out her given name you will be saying ONLY GOD ... I don't even have a picture of her yet, and we are absolutely in love with her already !!!! So much in my head and heart right now about God's perfect timing, His provisions, His will for our life and our children's life .... I am sorta of walking around my house in circle right now with that giddy feeling, like I can't even think of what to do next !!!! hee hee !!! can't wait to find out what size she is, if she knows her brother,Joseph, how much hair does she have, and of course praying a picture comes soon !!!!!

Hope to have more later !!!!

School is starting, Scott is back to getting up really early for school, we are off to football scrimmage for Jeremiah right now, Elijah is counting down the minutes till his buddy ice cream social tomorrow and Emily and Maggie are fighting over where their little sister will sleep ... I LOVE MY LIFE !!!!

40 kind words.:
