Dear Lily Mei,
You are so special to this family and
your Mama has been loving you for a lifetime!
We all can not wait to hold you in our arms
and see you smile.
This dress is very special and has been
waiting just for you. You have a sweet sister
angel in heaven that watches over you and
wants you to have her little yellow dress.
We love you,
Your Nunkle, Auntie Cathy, and Joy
May you all share Love, Happiness, and Health.
In peace and love,
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always hopes, always perseveres."~1 Corinthians 13:4-7
May your life be filled with faith, hope and love!
God Bless you always,
Jay, Angela and Laney Daniel

"And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love."~1 Corinthians 13:13
This square and sweet wish is from the Daniels. They are the couple that we met while we were all stranded in Detroit on our way to China.

To Lily Mei
Welcome dear Lily to a home that is new.
You’ve been eagerly awaited by your Mom, Dad and brothers, too.
You’re starting a new life surrounded by love on every side
And your Mom, Dad and brothers behold you with pleasure and pride.
You’ve started on a venture that is very strange and new
And you have to get acquainted with the world surrounding you.
But with such a great family to introduce you, Lily,
You’ll soon get use to living happily here.
You will have a lot of sunny days and many happy hours.
But remember with the sunshine there will always be some showers.
For life will be a mixture of both sunshine and rain,
Of joy and sorrow, mixed with happiness and pain.
But God will always be there to help and bless you, too
As you grow into adulthood and all your dreams come true.
Remember in everything you do be kind
And may you look at people with your heart
Not just your mind.
And remember Jesus looks down from heaven above
So live always in his likeness and
Learn to share his love.
And God bless your family who are all in love with you.

You are a precious gift from God. My prayer for you is that you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you use those gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been givn to you. embrace the possibilities that your future holds. Dream big-You can be whatever you want to be. May God bless you and your dear family.
God has truly blessed you with a loving family. May you grow into an adult who can boast as the Lord declares in Jeremiah 9:24: "Let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises loving kindness, justice, and rightousness on earth; for I delight in these things,' declares the Lord."
James 1:17 "Every good gift and every perfect gift if from above, and comes down from the Father of lights."
We love you,

As a little girl I was able to spend a lot of time with Mama Crouch, your namesake. She was a very strong, loving woman and your name represents that strong, loving woman. I hope this name brings the strength and love that she was able to give to others.
