As a gift to celebrate this announcement our dear friend Samantha Wedelich drew an image of us and for us. We've been big fans of her work for quite a well (do check out her work). But we loved the oven mitts, the red hair, Phaedra's characteristic skirt-over-pants look and the sweet image of togetherness that Samantha's line-drawing implies. May it ever be.
We don't always understand the ways and will of God, but we are grateful for the community of family and friends that surrounds us. We wouldn't want to do it any other way.
