It's a BOY!!!

(Stella seeing a picture of her little brother)

It's crazy how one phone call changes everything! On Thursday, I was at a photo shoot when my phone rang. It was our agency calling to tell us something very important. Those words we had been waiting to hear. "We have a little boy who needs a home."

As many of you know, we have been in the process of adopting two children. It became very unsure when we could be matched with two. It was going to take much longer, so we were faced with the question, do we wait for two and who knows how long that would be, or do we adopt this precious boy who is ready now. After much prayer, talks, and tears, we called our agency at 9:55pm and told her we would take him.

He is four months old, healthy, and possible the most precious boy we've ever seen. This has been such a crazy journey and it's about to get so much more fun. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support. Continue to pray that our court date will come soon so we can go meet our precious son. We already feel like a family of four!

Support Our Adoption and Get Something Lovely

I must say, our ole booth did pretty good. We worked like crazy for three days. We would hit the booth by 9am and not leave and hardly sit down until 11pm. Then we would head home and make more of whatever it was that we ran out of that day.
I couldn't have done it without the help of my mom and Greg. They took such good care or Stella and ran all my errands.
We are getting so close to our goal. We only need to raise $9,000 more. That seems like a drop in the bucket considering where we started.
