Here We Go.....

About a week and a half ago, we got an email from our agency telling us about a birth mom who was having a boy.  They asked us (and several other families) if we were interested in having her look at our profile.  We of course said yes.  The next night, we got a call letting us know that she had picked us and wanted to talk with us on the phone just to be certain.  So, the next morning we talked with her, and long story short, she chose us.

It all happened so fast and easily.  It was our first potential match, so it was wonderful and unexpected to be chosen this quickly.  We'd only been officially "active" with our agency for about a month, and I'm so glad that it wasn't a long wait for us.  (We've waited long enough already!)

And now we are in frantic get ready mode.  But, I am having so much fun.  For the first time, I get to go to baby stores and not feel sad and overwhelmed by my lack.  It's fun and exciting, and I'm not trying to get out of there as fast as I can.  And I have loved working on My Registry!

So, this is really happening!  In about 22 days, we will be on our way to Utah to meet our little guy.  I can't wait to see his little face!


  1. I am just a stranger weirdo who follows your blog. I just wanted to say Congrats! You and your husband seem like you'll be wonderful parents. I am from Utah so you can email me if you want advice on great places to eat or anything like that! Good luck :)

  2. I am so excited for you. I know how much you have been wanting a baby. I hope it all goes well. That baby could come anytime now.

  3. *gasp!* we are so excited for you guys, and will continue to pray that you will experience beauty and grace and courage all the way through . . .
