Welcome Miss Lila Jane! I jumped for joy when I heard (and it was quite a feat since I was on the treadmill at the time.) I'm praying that today JOY will dominate your emotions as you celebrate the arrival of a baby girl who has four big brothers watching over her. (The boys of Cobb and Fulton county in 16 years don't have a chance...)

Hello again,
I am so excited for ya'll. If I had scrolled down a little further I would have gotten my answer before the first comment. I had a feeling that it would be a girl! I can so see her fitting right in to your family. I do feel for her when she starts dating down the road!
Congrats,
Kim Bell

Wynn and I cannot express how happy we are for you today. The Lord has truly blessed you and has called you for the service and faith you continue to share and demonstrate with us and those whom you've never met. Your angel in heaven now has a sister.

May God continue to bless you!
