The Big Announcement

Yesterday I posted on Twitter and Facebook that we would be announcing something big. Last time we did that, it turned out to be our survey trip to Colombia which preceded deputation. Well yesterday after posting the teaser, there ensued a great swarm of speculationfrom “congrats on the twins” to “baby?” to “boys, girls, or both?” to…. wait, everybody really guessed that we’re having a baby? Could it be that simple? Was it that obvious? Hmmm

Actually, all of the guessers was at least partially right. Yes, we are expecting our second child!!

So now, questions fill our thoughts…. What will we name him (I’m pretty sure it’s a boy lol) … or her? What will he or she look like? How will we fit it all into our schedule? But really, we’re so thrilled that God would be so gracious to us in entrusting another precious child into our care. Looks like we’ll get to know the newest Vance in late May or early June.

It will be interesting to see how our little Amira reacts to not being the little baby anymore. If you have multiple kids, how did your older one react when they got a new sibling? Feel free to respond in the comments.

Thank you all for your prayers. Be praying for Aubrie especially as we will be travelling for some far-from-home meetings coming up this fall and into next year as we present our ministry in Colombia.

  1. Congratulations!!! We are so happy for you! When Rebekah came to the hospital to meet Aaron for the first time she wasn’t to thrilled:) but now they are great friends. Amira will do fine! Love you guys!!!

  2. Congratulations! I just wanted to let you both know that it was great to meet y’all at our church (Berean Baptist) at the annual mission’s conference. Our family will be praying for y’all as you travel and as Ms Aubrie carries your new baby!
    And we have 5 boys and have seemingly never had any problems with older siblings as we would bring another one home!
