New Daughters....

I know this isn't a "letter", but bear with me as I have some very exciting news about my daughter, present and future!

We will be adding to our list of daughters in two ways this year.

First (at least probably first) we will be adding a daughter in law!

Engaged 6/8/13
Jeremy and Sam  (as she prefers to be called), first noticed each other over a year ago. Jeremy spent a few months getting to know her father (more like her father getting to know Jeremy) about a year ago.  Last December, Jeremy was given permission to court Sam, and she was very happy to be courted by Jeremy.

Just shy of 5 months of courting, Jeremy planned a very special day at a local park.  At the previously planned appointed time, his brother, Jonathan, would "disappear."  Jeremy very sweetly asked Sam to marry him, and she agreed!

There is no date set yet, but the ring is gorgeous - Jeremy did an excellent job of picking it out all by himself!

Needless to say we wholeheartedly approve and are so proud of Jeremy in being such a godly young man and seeking to glorify God in this and every area of his life.  Sam has been raised in a family very similar to ours, and I am sure she will be an amazing help-meet to Jeremy.  Her heart for the Lord and homemaking is wonderful to behold.  We look forward to adding Sam to our list of godly daughters!

And secondly, we are in the process of adopting Priscilla (we will be giving her a new name once she is officially ours).  You can read all about our adoption on my new blog, A Seventh Sister!

(yes, I "photoshopped" that bow - I also changed the "blue" to lavender!
I just couldn't stand to see her in boy colors!)
