the call

We arrived home from Cuba this evening to one of the best voice messages ever!

We have a new daughter! All the details we have right now is that she's under 2 years old and she has a mild heart condition. We haven't seen her little face yet and we don't know any more details. We'll find out more tomorrow. Guess who won't be sleeping tonight?! We are beyond excited!!

I feel overwhelmed with gratitude right now. Thank you Lord Jesus.

This song sums up my emotions:

Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I close my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face

With arms wide open...


  1. Oh my word!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! What an incredible voicemail to come home too! She is precious!!!! Get ready to be blessed by your very own Spicy Hunan girl!!!! I am so happy for you!!!!!



  2. P.S: LOVE her name!!!!!!!

  3. Yes, yes, yes, she's BEAUTIFUL!!!!

    My second daughter was a heart baby too. Turns out her VSD closed on it's own and she never had any surgery, medications or restrictions. I pray Phebe Jayne's situation will be similar.

    SO happy for you! Any idea at all when you might travel?
