The Room That Changes Your Life

July 25, 2008 we spent hours cramped into a tiny room hearing lists of things wrong with our baby. Many appointments followed with more of the same. I hated that little room.

We were in that same room again last week, and this time we got hear what every parent should get to hear: "everything looks perfectly normal."

That's right, it's time Daphne becomes a big sister! Come the beginning of September hopefully we'll bring home another little one and fill our house with double trouble.

We are excited. Because sometimes that room rips your heart out, but sometimes it gives you just what you've needed.

Hope.

Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who hope in the Lord. ~Ps 31:24

Melissa,
I am SO proud of you and David...you have consistently honored the Lord and blessed Daphne with the way you have walked through life these last few years. Thanks for modeling to our family (and to everyone else) what it means to be both strong AND courageous.

Another little Kemple for his/her papa,gramma, Aunts, Uncle and cousins to love!!! We'll look forward to playing, snuggling, etc. with this little one. Our prayer for Baby Kemple is that he/she will grow up to love, honor and worship our Lord Jesus, and we are thankful for parents who have the same desire.
