Thank You, Father. We’d have loved another boy like crazy but You had a woman-child on Your mind. You have flipped two families. Thank You.

    PRAISE you Father!

    You are glorious, your blessings are so SWEET! Thank you for the privilege of watching this family enjoy this new blessing and give you all the glory while doing it!

    I needed this today-the faith boost-you do bring blessings! I need to continue to wait on you and not fill the void with other things, while I wait.

    Thank you for being patient with me father! I love you!

    In HIS holy name,

    Thanks for sharing your PINK news!

    I know you would have loved a little boy just as much and been just as pleased, but Amanda just needs a little girl. After briefly seeing her while we were in San Antonio and witnessing her sweet, tender heart….I thought right then….she needs a little girl!
    Praise the Lord! He is so good!
    My birthday is Feb. 14. Maybe she’ll be born on Valentine’s Day!
    Love y’all!

    I have two daughters also and they have between them 3 boys. In June we had our little princess arrive on the scene. Oh we are so excited and I can’t believe the flash backs I am having already. Like you there is nothing like my grandsons, but we are so enjoying our girl already at 2.5 months old. Congratulations to you all. You go Jackson- be that big brother.

    I am so thrilled for you all!! GOD is so precious!!

    A baby Amanda or maybe a baby like her pretty Bibby Beth…or perhaps a baby Melissa with a iron will and smart as a whip!!

    She will be beautiful and she will love Jesus from the earliest age and live her life out for HIM.

    Love and blessings to all of you!!

    PINK! Praise the Lord!!! A woman that I know and love once said, “If you have the choice, God’s will is always pink! Yield to the pink!”

    So glad that you will have a new little granddaughter to spoil! I am beside myself excited for Amanda and the entire Jones/Moore family. I sense a lot of hair ministry in your future!!!!Congratulations again!!!!

    CONGRATSULATIONS!!!!!! Girls are so fun. I have loved my first little grandchild like crazy, her name is Lilly (after my Mom). Now #2 is here and his name is Andrew. Because they are out of town I haven’t even seen him yet, and he is 4 months old. I’ve enjoyed your photos you’ve shared with us. Keep ’em coming. Hope you get to go home soon and all who work with you are safe. Your “on-line” family loves you and prays for you and yours. Thanks for sharing!

    Congratulations!! I am so thrilled for you. After having two boys, my husband and I had a little girl. It is so special. My friends and I were so excited about my little Jenna that it honestly looked like Pepto Bismol had exploded all over the room with all the pink things we bought! I’m sure you are all so excited…especially Bibby! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Many blessings,

    sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s what little girls are made of! My daughter is almost 4 years old, and I can say, it is so much fun dressing a little girl! I am guessing yours will be like mine, in the fact she had more clothes every season, than she could wear! I have enjoyed every single minute of it, and I KNOW you will too! Congratualtions!

    Oh, I’m so glad! I had a boy and then a girl and I was hoping the same for Amanda. Like you said love the kid like crazy even if it’s a boy, but it’s really nice to have both. I ended up with 2 girls after the one boy. (Not at the same time) My poor son. It’s girl world around here while daddy’s at work. I was so sure after I had a boy that I was going to have all boys, cause that is generally what seems to happen to my family. My family when nuts with excitement and my mother was so thrilled to buy PINK. And the frilly dresses. Angela had more frilly dresses then any little girl I’ve ever seen! The last little girl born into my family was me! On either side. So my mom was so excited! Anyway, congratulations to all of the Moore’s, Jones’, and Fitzpatrick’s. I’m sure Melissa is thrilled too. I loved being an aunt. I mean I’m still an aunt, but with my own kids I don’t spend as much time with my nephews.
