Can I be the first to say CONGRATULATIONS to you both and welcome to the amazing world that is "Parenting". You both will be the most wonderful parents and we can't wait to meet Sophie! Friday was by far one of the most special days of our lives! We are sooooo happy to be able to celebrate in your joy and know that you are ONE STEP closer to bringing your DAUGHTER home! We love you (ALL THREE OF YOU) so much!

Yeah! Congratulations. I am so thankful that you have a daughter. We are so delighted and relieved for you. Dave & Val (Holt forum too)

Ann said...

So, SO happy for you! Talk about going from the depths of despair to the heights of glory!

She is beautiful, love the name AND she is from the same orphanage as our Vu. I have no doubt that our son has played with and loved your baby--he often went into the baby room to be with the babies.

I can tell you the kids are very well cared for at B.D. Vu has so many wonderful memories there and loved his nannies so much.

Congrats again!

Tricia and Hank she is a beautiful daughter and I know you two will be great parents as I will be a great granddad. Its hard to put words on paper the feeling thar I have since you two called friday.
Sophie has touched so many lives already. Your family at calvary baptist was all smiles and full of joy as we passed her picture around. She even made it into the sermon on family values. Our god is an awesome and great god. Through sophie we can see how is cares and loves us, we also see that he does answer prayers, he can turn tears of sorrow into tears of joy, how he can take a broken heart and mends it, we see his timing is always perfect and he does know what or who is best for us. It is wonderful to see that God is still working all around us. THANK YOU GOD FOR SOPHIE. Can not wait until you all bring her home..PS Hank again a belated happy fathers day, you made it under the wire and also you looked great in the hat. A proud DAD. Love you both..DAD.
