Lewis Referral!!!!

We proudly introduce you all to our precious baby girl, Sophie Mei Lewis. Her Chinese given name is Yu Cai Guang. She was born on January 19, 2007. We got the call today and they emailed us this first picture. Tomorrow we will be receiving a Fed-Ex package with two other pictures and all the history they have for her. Marc and I are on Cloud 9. I'm really exhausted about now because I haven't slept very well in the last couple of days, we've been anticipating this phone call since Friday. We are hoping to travel to China in late December or early January. I will post more later when I'm able to process a little more.

Love you all!!!!

Psalm 100 "Shout for joy to the Lord, al the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations."

I am praising and thanking our precious Father with you. What a gift from above.

love you both,
Jennifer Meadows

Sherry and Marc! Ahhhhh! I'm so pumped up for you guys. I had tears coming to my eyes when I saw the picture of that precious baby girl. I called Joe in here and we both looked at that sweet face. And you know what? Your Sophie and my Sophie were born almost on the same day! Yours was born Jan. 19th and ours was on the 30th. So now it's definite...they're going to have to be BFF's. :-) Love you!

HI Sherry,
I am so incredibly happy for you. I cried. I always ask Melissa about you guys and if your little girl had arrived. She sent me the exciting news! Thank you for letting me be a part of this exciting moment. God is Awesome.

Love Ruby Jenkins (Melissa's friend and fellow cheesecake lover).

Wow, I am so excited!!!!!! Sherry, just to think as we walked and talked on the beach your sweet baby girl was heading to bed half way around the world. And now you, at last, have a face to put with her beautiful name. And she is soooooo beautiful! Congratulations!! You have my promise of prayer for safety (for her as she waits for your arrival, and for you as you wait to go and then as you travel to get her and as you travel home again), for swiftness (as all of the final details fall into place) and for smooth transition (from anticipation to fulfillment of a dream). May God paint a glorious picture of grace as He weaves your lives physically together. Thanks for allowing all of us to witness such a precious "birth."

Much love from all of the Van Gorders (Beverly, Jim, James, Seth, Margaret, Noah, and Gabriel)
