It's a boy!


It's amazing how much life can change in one short month. On January 14th we received a phone call from our Social Worker telling us we had been chosen by another birthmom and dad. On February 14th our baby was born.


I'm skippin' a whole lotta details here...and I will come back with the long version of the story in a few days.


Our "risk period" ends this Wednesday at 1:30pm when the birthparents go to court and sign the FINAL paperwork...so to all my prayer warrior friends: please pray that all goes smoothly on Wednesday. THEN, I will be doing a post introducing our SON - and it will include lots of pictures of his perfect little face (and fingers, and toes, etc.)




P.S. Lily looooooooves him. She is the best big sister ever.


Be back soon!
