God is so good! He has really been working on our little family this year. I'm not sure if I have shared this before, but Avery was the one who first prayed for a sister (with a different skin color) in our home. God used her to encourage us to adopt a daughter from China and she has been one of our biggest supporters on this journey.
God has really worked in Avery's heart the past year. She has a huge heart for others! And loves God with all that she is. About 3 months ago she prayed alone in her room for God to live in her heart and be her Savior. Brad and I were so proud (even though this had nothing to do with us and all with God). Early in May she came to us asking to be baptized. We were shocked! Not because she doesn't love Jesus, but because she is so young. But we meet with the Children's Pastor at Fellowship and he said despite her young age, she was ready.
So this morning we are proud to announce that our sweet daughter Avery Reese was baptized into Christ's family!!!
She had a wonderful turnout of family, friends, and teachers supporting her.

All of the people that showed up have been a wonderful influence on Avery's life and helped her to this wonderful place. Thank you all for loving on our sweet girl, for showing her God's love daily and for supporting her today.
