Let the Nations Rejoice!!

We wanted to share something really special that touched us when Karis was born. We have been praying that Karis' life would be in many ways a "revelation of grace" to the nations. The meaning of her name has been such a powerful reason why we have called her that and the day she was born already gave us hope for such.

Our friend Hilary teaches many international students from all over the world. And she was waiting for our phone call on the day Karis was born and told her students of such. When she got the phone call, they all rejoiced! They even started discussing in the class about the meaning of her name. Hilary spent the next day in class talking about grace to them for over an hour! It has been so exciting to us to hear such news! And the night she was born her nurse was from India and helped me in so many ways...she loved karis and continued to talk about her and treat her as if it were her own child. I will never forget the day she was born and when the nations already began rejoicing. Hilary got a video of her class...i will post it when i receive it.

until then, here is a cute video of wesleygrant the day we brought karis home....
