Emily Ruth

Before I get back to my regular blogging, I wanted to share some pictures of my newest little niece, Emily Ruth.  This beautiful baby girl was born August 31st to hubby's youngest sister Elizabeth.  She and her husband Ulises live in Mexico and work very, very hard in establishing churches.  God has given them many amazing successes, and we are constantly fascinated at what God is doing through them.
Emily is this dear couple's third child.  They have waited nearly 5 years for the Lord to give them another baby.  A year and a half ago, they were devastated by a miscarriage and prayed faithfully for the Lord to give them another child.  Ever heard the saying "three's a charm"?  Emily is definitely their little charm!  All three of their children are precious treasures who have been born into a very loving home.
For Christmas, our family will be heading to southern Mexico and we are looking forward to meeting our newest family member!  
Most of you know that my hubby is one of 8 children.  All of those children are {fairly} young adults who have an average of 4 children each!  Wanna know the grand totals of our family to date?

1 Mimi {Prampa is in heaven} 
8 children and their spouses
32 grandchildren
4 in Heaven who live on in our hearts and deserve mentioning
1 on the way!

It is so much fun to be married into a large family!


  1. Your sister-in-law, Elisabeth, looks slike your little girl!! Beautiful!

    1. We hear this alot! When my sister-in-law and I were in college together, we were told often how much the two of us look alike too!

  2. She's beautiful, Mrs. Sloan! Praise the Lord for the blessing of such a precious little one!

  3. Such a pretty baby girl! I have a special love for large families, too. :)
    I'm still praying for little Joshua and would love it if you could send me a quick email and let me know how he is doing.
    So glad you and your family are well.
    Love, Amy
