april 4,2007

This is our first post on Chloe's blog. Wow! That sounds so strange. After waiting for a child since July 2006, it is nice to write such a sentence. Another suprise was that we were expecting a boy. We did not specify boy or girl....and the agency said that girls take more time to get. So, we had the boy name picked out and even were referring to the baby in December as a boy. On March 26,2007 a referral of a girl 4 months old is available. One look at the picture and we knew she was ours! Her name came around a week later....since we did not have it ready for the referral day.

We will be traveling to get her anytime from June 2007 to August 2007. She was born on November 20,2006 ...the day after daddy's birthday!

So, now we are busy getting her room ready and preparing for her arrival.

God has blessed us indeed! We can see the light ahead of us and He is guiding us to a child He picked out for us long ago.

Les and Sarah finally have their baby girl! They have been so patient and prayerful in waiting. We all knew she would come, but we didn't know she would be so perfect! Now we are getting ready for the baby shower- red, yellow and stars. Chloe will be so sooo spoiled. :)

Congratulations Sarah and Les!!! She is a beautiful baby girl. Les, she will have you wrapped around your little finger in no time. Some day she will ask you, "Daddy, can I have a horse?", and part of you will think, "Well, why not? Sounds like a reasonable request." Have fun painting the baby's room!

I look at her picture many times each day and long to hold her, kiss her, and spend time with her. She is waiting for us too. What an incredible blessing from God!

Sarah and Les,

Congratulations on the new (soon to be) arrival! She is so adorable, we can't wait to see pictures of the family together. We were so happy to hear the good news from grandma gloria regarding the new addition months ago. She will be well-loved in her new family.

Parenthood is such a priveledge and life-altering experience and not a day goes by where you won't smile and giggle inside at the thought of your little one.
