The Big Announcement

Ok....finally. Finally, we are ready to spill the beans.

You've been so patient.

Or annoyed.

Or both.


This thing has been in the works since about February or March, I guess. Plans have been made, disagreements hashed out, selfish feelings put at bay, craziness rationalized.....

You get the gist.

This thing has NOT been an easy decision. It's been something that we know we are supposed to do. Something we know is the right thing to do for our family. Something that we, *ahem*, I haven't always been 100% on board with.

But, I am now. And I am certain. And excited. And in a good place. we go.


Our big news, is that our family will be growing again!

Sometime in the next few months....we hope to adopt again.

From China...again.

This time.....a son.

We are paperwork ready. Everything is done. We have to wait until Rylie's 1-year adoption date to send our dossier off to China (September 20).

Now, we just have to find him.

And I absolutely can not wait to see that sweet face for the first time.

Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names.
They are easier to ignore before you see their faces.
It is easier to pretend they're not real before you hold them in your arms.
But once you do, everything changes.
