today started out wonderfully.
I woke up at my parent's house. we are in town for a wedding.
I played with my nieces and nephews.
I started a photo shoot with baby John.
and then the day got even more wonderful than I could ever tell you.
because I got a phone call from holt international. and they told me that they had a baby boy they thought would be a great match for our family.
and I didn't drop the phone...but I did start crying.
and then I called pete and we opened an email together (on our phones) that will change our lives forever.
he is magnificent.
he is beautiful.
he is our son.
and I wanted to reach right through the computer and scoop him into my arms and never let him go.
he is 2 1/2 months old. he has beautiful big brown eyes. precious pouty lips. and I am head over heels in love with him.
I wish I could post pictures of him...but I can't until he is home with us. but trust me...he's a dream.
here are some shots of us looking at him for the first time...and of pete telling his mom on the phone.
as you can tell...he is already beloved by all!
thank you, dear friends and family, for praying for this little guy.
we are floating on a cloud. we are so grateful to God for this gift that He has given us.
