THE CALL

Well...I had this whole post about the draft scheduled for today (see below)... BUT INSTEAD WE HAVE A BABY!!!! At this point, all we know is that she had it at home (that was, of course, unplanned :). I was already to leave for work this morning but we will be leaving for Kentucky instead! We are so excited and I'm a teary mess. Pray for us! We'll update as we are able!

Amazing!!!!! Can't wait to hear all about it. Enjoy your time- these first few days are so precious. And please call if you have any newborn questions/hospital questions. It's likely they will be observing the baby for a while because he was born at home, but I pray all else is well.

I think I'll smile all day!!

I can't believe it! Every time I see there is an updated post from you, as I click your link I think "maybe this will be the post)... and now it is! I can't wait to hear all about your trip to Kentucky, see pictures of your boy, etc. We are all thinking and praying loads for you over the next few weeks (even if he did interrupt your draft!).

Congratulations! I'll pray for peace and encouragement (strength sufficient for any undertaking) as you enter this new round of parenthood!

Blessings to you both!

What a great adventure!!

It is a joy to pray for you four, and the birth mom, especially the baby, and all concerned. We know that God is firmly in control of the situation as it exists now, and of every detail of all of the implications spreading out down into the years, decades, centuries, and millenia, and beyond.

We'll be checking back here to see how things go!
