Teenok: Made in Israel

Yes, it's true. We are expecting another child in February. Many of you have waited and prayed for this, patiently and quietly wondering. Thank you. We are filled with joy and happiness because He has given us more life.

So now we're praying for a good doctor or midwife that speaks English, as well as great health for me and the baby. No, the blue doesn't mean it's a boy, but we'll let you know.

Cassidy is thrilled to be a big sister again. Since her birthday is February 13th and we're expecting the baby late February she views it as a very special birthday present. She even said that she doesn't need any presents because we're going to have the baby. She prays for the baby every day, hugging me and kissing me more than usual (which is a lot) and telling me to eat and sleep enough to grow the baby. One of her new favorite things to do is talk about all the things she's going to do for the baby: change diapers (not poopy ones), throw the diapers away, sing to the baby, put a blanket on the baby, tell the baby stories before bedtime.

We all feel the same way as Cassidy: this child is a gift and we are grateful to be adding to our family and the Kingdom.

*teenok, תינוק is Hebrew for baby
