New Life

Hooray!!!!!  Our little Sophie is here!!  I have wept, sung praises, and laughed with joy over this gift from our Father.  Below is a prayer update Joe sent out the day Sophie was born....

Dear Friends-

I woke up at about 4:15am this morning (April 5th) and Joy said, "Honey, I think we need to get to the hospital." So, off we went. And a few hours later, into the world Sophia Jane came. Thank you, Lord!

She was born via C-Section at 10:15am. She weighed 7 lbs and 1 oz. and was 19 inches long.

My wife is a hero and God is so good!

Please thank the Lord for this new life with us!


Joe, Joy, Noelle, and Sophia

Joy was ready to say goodbye to being pregnant and hello to Sophia Jane.

Sophia was 10 minutes old at the time of this picture. We do not take life for granted. What a gift!

God knew what He was doing, didn't He? Two beauties...

Noelle was ecstatic to meet her new sister! I was ecstatic to introduce them.

Our daughters have two amazing Grandmas and here they both are. Noelle Ruth was named for my mother and Sophia Jane is named for Joy's. What godly women and we are so thankful for them both! May Sophia trust in Jesus someday and walk with Him all her days. Father, let it be so!
