For several months now, maybe even for two and a half years, a certain little Chinese orphan has been somewhat of a thought, an idea of sorts in response to a call from God.The paper chase, the prayers, the couple of agonizing decisions that had to be made in the process all seemed to center around something extraordinary, but nonetheless, just a thought.Today, that thought became real and tangible.She has 10 little fingers and 10 little toes.She has a few wisps of black hair and two little dark brown Asian eyes.She has a mouth full of teeth, a little bitty smushed in nose and the sweetest little lips you have ever seen.She has a personality that shifts from quiet, calm and laid back (Daddy), to scheming, conniving and a little bossy (Mommy) in a matter seconds (Peck).We are overjoyed to introduce you all to the newest little member of the Peck family…Trevor and Brandon’s baby sister…Maggie Jane Xiaoli Peck.She was placed in her Mommy’s arms at 9:56 AM Monday morning (Beijing time), January 10, 2011.We are thankful to know her…we are thankful to have her…and the only other thing I know to say at this point is this … God is faithful.I have said many times that your prayers have been felt but never more strongly than this morning.He has answered them…and in a big way.More to come later, but please know our hearts are full today, and each of you has had a hand in that.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
