She looks so precious and happy to have you there! It sounds like she's doing great. Congrats again! (As much as I miss being there, I don't miss that pink crib, our girl could rock herself right out of it :)

What a thrill and an honor for us to witness your "gotcha" in person ... When Julie is finished her overwhelming emotional meltdown at such a blessing, she will write you... and send you a few more photo's. Blessings John & Julie

Wow Gen and John! Congratulations! She is a cutie pie, as is Michael! I was so surprised to hear you were waiting for another baby so soon after you returned with Michael. We're still waiting for the call from Colombia ... are feeling a little "left behind!" I follow your blog, but don't post often because I can never remember my password -- lame or what? But know we check in on you guys and are SO EXCITED to see how your family has grown. :) Prayers from the USA!
