For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted my petition made to Him. (1 Samuel 1:27)

I can't believe the day has come....where we can shout from the rooftops that the Lord has given us a child!!  
We would like to introduce everyone to our daughter.  (I can't believe I can say that)

For security reasons, we will be calling her "Sue" while using the internet and social media.

Where do I start!?  We saw this little face on the waiting list months ago, and the Lord would not let us forget it.  The first time I looked at her information, I was just curious about her.  She looked different from all the other children and I wanted to know more about her.  Wilson and I were able to watch videos and look at pictures that they had at our agency.  We started falling in love with her!
  She has quite a personality!  She has spunk and giggles that will make you melt.  
We learned that she LOVES anything pretty.  Pretty clothes, jewelry, etc.  
She LOVES to read, and would rather look at a book than play with a toy.
She dances, she colors, and she plays...all with smiles.

She is special!  A rare jewel indeed.  1 in 1 million in all actuality.
We believe our girl has a very rare genetic syndrome called Carpenter Syndrome.  We have a journey ahead of us that will be full of doctor's visits, surgeries, and unknowns.  But we feel honored that the Lord has given us the privilege to walk through this journey with her.  She is ours!

I love this video and song by JJ Heller.  I can just imagine our gorgeous "Sue" at home one day.  Playing in fairy wings and eating ice cream.  The words I pray and sing over her now:

"My love, may you dream of beautiful things
'Til the dawn of the day bright and new
Wherever you go, I want you to know
When I dream, I dream of you"

"Sue" I pray that you will dream of beautiful things until we can finally come get you!
There is a day dawning that will be bright and new!  You will have a Mom and Dad and we will have YOU!

Wherever you go and whatever you will be doing until that day....I want you to know:

When I dream, I dream of you!

"You will show me the path of life;
in Your presence is fullness of joy; 
at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
Psalm 16:11

Thank you LORD!
