Baker's Dozen

Well, technically I guess it's really 15 given the recent addition of Alyssa Pfister & Carlan Wendler to the McCropder clan.  Either way you count it, we are pleased to announce the anticipated arrival of another baby in mid-October.  The Cropseys will be the first of the McCropders to enter the world where the children outnumber the parents in the house!  

One perk about living at a mission hospital is the personal attention you get when you need a doctor.  Toanh Popp has graciously taken me to the hospital on her days off to do my check-ups.  On Friday, we took Elise so that she could see the baby on ultrasound.  She's definitely in favor of a baby sister and at first guess it appears she may be granted her wish.  Time will tell...

We would appreciate your prayers for a continued healthy pregnancy and we'll look forward to introducing our new little munchkin to all of you back in the U.S.A.

Congratulations! Hmmm I'm thinking this is the only baby McCropder to have been to Burundi already?? You were a bit vague about family plans then .. . you've kept this under wraps for a long time. So happy for you. Jennifer
