Hi Amy! CONGRATULATIONS on your new baby girl!!! She is BEAUTIFUL!! I have been praying for you guys and have been following your blog and your journey for a while now. (I am friends with Riley Griggs Johnson) I am so happy for you guys!!! GOD is so good!!
Our pastor's message this morning was from Hebrews and I believe this verse proves that He is always true to His promise and that you guys are a true example of faith and patience. "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10:23
Congrats again! I cannot wait to hear more about your sweet Annie Rice!
