Expectant Parents

Since we moved here the Lord has blessed me with some amazing friends. I could probably do a whole blog just on how interesting and wonderful these women are. One fun thing about making new friends is that you sometimes get to become friends with their friends. One such friend-of-a-friend is Kristin Lewis. She is a beautiful, perky, fun, godly, passionate person with bouncy blonde curls and a gorgeous smile. And she's an expectant mom. Kristin and her husband will get on a plane tomorrow and fly to Taiwan, where they will be united for the first time with their precious daughter, Laney Xiang-Ting Lewis. I have been filled with glee (there's really no other word) just watching from a short distance as this little family has been pieced together. They have a web site that they will be able to update from overseas. This is the address in case you would like to join in the community of believers who are praying for them: www.youbelong.net/toddandkristin. Their joy is contagious and I know you will be blessed.

Update: Visit Janelle and Ella's blog for some fun pictures of their departure.

Ha ha! I had a feeling that might happen. But I just think it's so neat that there are different ways we can be expecting a baby. I am so emotional about this today! Maybe I am expecting! No, seriously, not really.
