Big, big, big, BIG News!!!!

After 23 months, 4 weeks, and 2 days since beginning our adoption, almost two full years of blogging in 310 posts, one failed adoption attempt, and 6 months, 3 weeks and 6 days in the RMI program, I finally, FINALLY get to write the post I've been waiting all this time to write!


The call came about an hour ago, and... WE HAVE A SON!
I told you it would be a boy, didn't I? I knew it! He was born November 16th, so he's about 4 months old. That's all I can tell you for now, only because that's all I know. We'll get more information soon. I can't wait to see his precious face and show him off to all of you! I will as soon as I'm able- I promise.


We should be travelling anywhere from two to six weeks from now. Can you believe it?




Dear Sam,


Tonight I can finally fall asleep knowing that you are not just a vague whisper of hope or a misguided fantasy. You are real. You are loved. And you are mine. I can't wait to hold you in my arms. See you soon, my precious boy.

Love you with all my heart,

Mama
