today was anna's four month check up. she weighed in at 13 lbs. 6 oz. and was 24 1/2 inches long. i can't believe how much she is growing!
you know i am in awe once again at how richly we (the universal "we") are blessed. yesterday a friend of ours from college, john cordes, and his wife vanessa welcomed another precious daughter to their family. what a treasure each new life is!
in the last year our church welcomed 38 new babies...many of those were our friend's and one was our nephew. this year we are awaiting the arrival of another niece or nephew. ross' brother and his wife are waiting on God's blessing through adoption. we are so excited to see what the Lord has in store for them and for our family with this baby's arrival. it has been a long and hard road for them and still continues to be as they wait. for those of us who have not been through all that they have the fear of never having a child is not there. for them, however, it is difficult to believe that they will ever hold their baby. please pray for their hearts to be encouraged in the waiting!
