Huge, Happy Announcement!

First of all, please forgive me. I have been keeping something between my hubby & me (and a handful of the most wonderful friends that have prayed to move mountains, but that's a whole 'nother blog post!). It's been an overwhelming, wonderful day...I look forward to sharing more soon, but right now, I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our family.

This little miracle is Kendi Hope, & she is 8 days old today.
We just arrived home a few hours ago, & while she's getting acquainted with everyone, I snuck away for just a minute to share our miracle with you.

These are some pictures from our first moments together & after getting home.
There will be LOTS of pictures with her brothers & sisters coming along soon!






Thank you for letting us share. We are overjoyed that God brought us together with this bundle of sweetness.

Praising the Lord with you today!

I've been praying for you this week (without knowing who or what I was praying for) after Christie asked for prayer for her friends on her blog.

What an awesome God we serve! I cannot wait to hear the rest of your sweet story.

Blessings.
