Aug 14, 2008 - Aug 14, 2009

We got the call about our little sweetie on August 14, 2008. Yes, we were initially stunned (read here if you'd like), but now are excited (slight understatement) and grasping on to the truth that God has given us this privilege and responsibility to parent another of His children.

First glimpse EVER of our little girl....



Just got this picture from Natalie yesterday, Aug. 14, 2009....



Just a a little while longer, sweetie (end of October, hopefully)!
