Happy, Happy Birthday, Baby. . .

Yes, it's birthday weekend around here. Today is Big Sister's 14th birthday!

Big Sister is an absolutely wonderful daughter. We are so thankful for her and the work of the Lord we see in her life.

God is already creating in her a gentle and quiet spirit that is not only precious to the Lord; it is precious to me, too!

Big Sister is uncommonly kind to her younger siblings and very patient in general. I would call her a "Miss Steady" because she has great self-control and rarely variates from her reliability and dependability. She is like a "true north."

Big Sister has a special heart for missions. She has been with us twice to Central America and is eagerly awaiting another opportunity.

Just as important to her is the mission of adoption. It blesses me so much to see and hear her excitement about Hai Hai and her hopes to one day grow her own family through the miracle of adoption.

Big Sister is a blessing to us and our whole family. She was our first baby, and and we love her dearly.

Happy Birthday, Big Sister!
