Here He is World!

Yep! In one short week this sweet little guy will be home! He was born the same week we contacted DHS about foster care/pre-adoption classes. One year later, here we are!

Our family threw us a shower last night and as we got started my sister read this:

"Once there were two women who never knew each other. One you don't remember, the other you call mother.

Two different lives shaped to make you one. One became your guiding star, the other became your sun.

The first one gave you life, the other taught you to live it. The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it.

Once gave you nationality, the other gave you a name. One gave you talent, the other gave you aim.

One gave you emotion, the other calmed your fears. One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried your tears.

One sought for you a home, that she could not provide. The other prayed for a child, and her hope was not denied. "
