Welcome Josie Grace!

 
Heather and the girls, a few weeks before Josie's birth.  With such beauty, why not add another?
 


Long labor (almost 12 hours) and a natural childbirth completely wore out mom and baby (and me, but to a lesser degree).  What an intense, almost surreal, experience!


 
Letting Josie know she is loved by God and by her parents.
 
Heather's sister-in-law (also Heather), took some incredible pictures right after Josie's birth!  Thank you Heather (and Birdie Girl Photography).
 
 
Well hello, rosebud!

 Josie's first passport photo (taken at 2 days old!).  We are leaving for Kenya in just 6 short weeks as a family, to continue the work God has called us to at Tenwek.
 

Thank you for all the love, prayers and support you have given our family!
