Congratulations to the Gerke family!

My friend Jeff and his wife, Robin, are in China at this moment, picking up their new daughter, Sophie. This is a video of their first meeting--which, I believe, took place on Jeff's birthday!

The photo is of our first meeting with OUR daughter, who had just arrived from Korea . . . the same emotions, I'm sure, even though our meeting took place more than 20 years ago.

Congratulations Jeff and Robin! (Yes, this is Jeff Gerke, the novelist who writes as Jefferson Scott.)
