You've been waiting for this.

We have some good news. Actually it's great news. If you know us personally, it's pretty much the best news you're going to hear this year. Maybe even in your lifetime. No joke.

As you might know, Jared and I really, really, really, want to be parents. And, without boring you or giving a pity-story about the past 5 years, I'll just say this: it's been a tough journey. We received news last Saturday (August 1st) that a new chapter in our lives will be beginning. We will finally be parents! And, no, I'm not pregnant. We have been matched to adopt a baby boy! I know you're dying to know the details.


Due date: August 27, 2009 (um... that's in 3 weeks!)

He will have two eyes.
He'll have two feet.
And ten tiny fingers, and ten tiny toes.
He'll make stinky diapers.
He'll cry and not let me sleep.
He will cost us a truckload of money.

But he will also...

Smile at me,
Call me his mommy, and
Fill my aching heart.


I can't wait to meet him.
