We are pleased to announce...

a new addition on its way into our family! God is blessing us with a child and we are so thankful. The Bible says "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward" (Psalm 127:3). We have been asking God to bless us this way, and in His time He did! Sometimes it's extremely hard to wait on the Lord, but His timing is perfect. And now that the waiting is part of the way over, I can say that I wouldn't have it any other way.

The baby is due in late December, as of now. I haven't had an ultrasound to help with the due date yet, so it will very likely change. Please pray for us, that all will go well. Making it past the three-month mark doesn't mean nothing bad will happen. But God knows best, and it's a precious thing to have a child even this long.

Let the Congratulations roll in!

Joy, call me sometime when you aren't busy. I hate to call...I always feel like I call at a bad time. I'd like to catch up, though. Maybe you can come over sometime.

Love,
Rach
