Devika Noelle


Please join us in welcoming the newest addition to our family ~ Devika Noelle! {DAY-va-ka}
Born on August 13th, 2007.. and officially welcomed into our family today!
We were sent answers to our questions today from India (an amazingly fast response!!), and they were exactly what we had hoped and prayed to hear. Our girl is a little fighter.. and she is doing very well. We hear that she is cooing and smiling.. can lift her head.. and can roll over onto her stomach!!
Now comes the super-difficult waiting period!! Please join us in praying that little Devika will be home with us very soon. The legal process can take up to 6-8 months, but of course we are praying that it is extremely speedy!!

The name Devika Noelle was chosen by us, and means 'Little Goddess/Derived From God' / 'Born on Christmas'. She is definitely a little goddess (our 2nd little princess/goddess!), and she was referred to us (born into our hearts) at Christmas.. so we thought that 'little Christmas goddess' was very appropriate!
We can't wait to meet you, little Devika! Hooray - It is a very special day!

I love the names...at one point I thought you might have a total change of plans and call her "Saskia" LOL!!!

We are thrilled your questions were answered so quickly and we hope and pray you'll soon hold her in your arms and that in the meanwhile she will grow fit and strong.
