Gotcha Havah Rose~

I met the most joyful little girl today that Greg and I are now blessed to now call our daughter.... Havah Rose Le Lan Franks. I can't wait for Greg to "meet" her via FaceTime soon. 

She was nervous and scared when we first saw her, but she quickly warmed up to us. After several hours in the hotel room now, she is definitely the center of attention. I will share more later... just wanted to get a couple of pictures up to share with all of you. I can say this... She exudes pure joy!!  

The Lord definitely went before us... and for that I am forever grateful. HE is so so good. every. single. time. I give HIM all the praise for this dear child today. It overwhelms me to think there are still so many orphans in the world... 153 million (known). Today, there was one less!!

"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this; to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world."
