CO Baby Shower!!!

My sister threw me a baby shower on Friday, June 17, 2011 and it was wonderful! Many of my friends and family were there and they showered me with all the baby stuff I need to go pick up our little guy in Michigan when we get the call! I just want to say thank you so much to all of you who came to the shower! I had a great time! Thank you also to those of you who couldn't make it and sent gifts to our home in WA. CJ has been receiving many packages! It is very exciting for us to finally be to this point! Thank you all for all your prayers and support along our long journey. And we ask for continued prayer as we are very soon going to be traveling to Michigan. Please pray we have safe travels there and back and pray the baby is born healthy and that there are no complications. Pray also that the legal process goes quickly and smoothly. Thank you so much!!!

Homeward Bound!!!

It is official! CJ is headed back to WA! CJ left for det on May 7, 2011 and was scheduled to be gone until August 1, 2011, but after we got the call about our adoption opportunity he started to work at finding a way to come back early so he could be here for the birth. He had to work really hard to get everything done so he was able to come home, but he did it! He left on Sunday and last I heard he was in Jacksonville, FL on his last leg up to Whidbey Island! He should be back in WA later tonight! Thank you for all of you who were praying he would be able to be back in time to go out to Michigan!

Due Date 1 month out......

So the due date is exactly one month from today!!! I can't believe that our little guy is due in only one short month!!! We are working really hard to get all the money together quickly because we have to pay a lot sooner than we thought. We have applied for an adoption grant but haven't heard anything yet. We would really appreciate some prayer in that area! We really need to grant to be able to cover the rest of the costs. It is all coming so soon and we are getting very excited! Thanks for all your prayer and support throughout our journey so far. Please also pray for the birth mother. Pray that she will be at peace with her decision and with the situation and that she will feel comfortable with us. And pray for the little guy that he is growing big and strong! Thanks!!!

A Family member shared this with us and we think it is great!

Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were
discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture
had a different hair color than the other members. One of her
students suggested that he was adopted.
   A little girl said, 'I know all about
Adoption, I was adopted..'
   'What does it mean to be adopted?', asked
  another child.
'It means', said the girl, 'that you grew
in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!'
