Big, Exciting, Fabulous news!!!!

So, some of you know and some of you don't....but our big exciting news is that we are adopting!   We are VERY excited and hope that all of our friends and family can be EXCITED with us!  Over the last year our eyes have been opened to the terrible condition that children with disabilities in many other countries are living in.  Most of these children are living in orphanages with very few caregivers, limited food and toys and not enough affection.  Our new son is 4 almost 5.  He has down syndrome.  He has blong hair and blue eyes!  He looks like he will fit right into our family!  We are working feverishly to get all of our paperwork done so we can go get him!  We are hoping he will be home in time for christmas this year.  I will be using the blog to keep people updated so check back often!

and here is our lovely new addition!
