"He gives the barren woman a home, so that she becomes the happy mother of her children.
Praise the Lord!"
Psalm 113:9 (New Living Translation)

This verse was my heart's cry two years ago - "Lord, give us a place of our own to call home, and give us a child!" I am so amazed at His goodness to us in granting both desires - a home and a child. We do not deserve these incredible gifts to us. But they call out glory to His name! He delights in giving good gifts to His children! I praise Him and adore Him for how He loves us. Oh Father of Light, all our joy is because of You!

Baby Shower!

The pics tell it all! I just want to say thank you to everyone who came and showered Luis & I with gifts for our little girl! Also thank you to those who threw the party: Maggie Faull, Carrie Dunham & Dodo Nelson. Cheryl Buoni who led the devotional, Lynda Hawkins, who led the games, Megan Hawkins & Sharon Pallay who helped secretly, and Emily Dinsmore who took the photos! We are soooo blessed with so many wonderful people in our lives to support & love us, and to share in our excitment to welcome Ellie Sofia into our lives. We love you all! THANK YOU!
