Welcome to our corner of the web! Here you will learn about our family and our journey of a family member adoption. In July of 2010, after 9 years of trying to add to our family and 5 years after we started our adoption journey, we welcomed baby Emily Rose. Emily's birth mom is Sharon's adopted sister. We look forward to someday adopting more children but for now, we are enjoying our time together as a family of 4!

28 week appt.

Last Tuesday was K's latest dr. appt. She asked the dr. if he could do an ultrasound since I was there. So sweet of her to think of me! It was so neat to see baby girl on the screen. She even waved at us. So cute! K is such a sweetie. She gave me this card:
And these cute bows for baby girl's hair, and this adorable elephant to hang in her crib. The elephant plays Lullaby. So sweet!
I also got this cute cute baby bump pic of K at her dr. appt. Love it!
We all went up to see her a couple of weeks ago and gave her a birthmother's day present early. Jacob wanted to be there when we gave it to her. I don't have a picture of it, but I will get one and post it later.
Baby girl is growing wonderfully. K is glowing! She is amazing. We couldn't ask for a more wonderful birthmom for our baby girl. We love you K!
And Baby Girl has a name. we were going to wait to name her until the hospital, but there was one name that kept striking us all as the right name for this little one. When I was up there last Tuesday K referred to Baby Girl as Emily. That is the name we have all felt is right for this little one. So Baby Girl will from now on, be known as Emily Rose. Here is the story behind Emily:
About 5 or 6 years ago Tammy said that if we had a girl she wanted to name her. I asked her what she would name her and she said she had "always wanted a sister named Emily". So it has stuck with us since. Rose is K's middle name, so to honor her, we wanted Emily to have her middle name. So Emily Rose it is. YAY!
Next dr. appt. is on the 3rd of June. I can't wait! Hubby will have drill that day so he won't be able to make it. And Tammy still has school until the 4th. In fact the 3rd is her 9th grade Lagoon day. She is so excited! I can't beleive she will be in 10th grade soon! That means driver's ed next year! AGH!!! ;o)
