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!

She's Here!!! Welcome to the World Emily Rose!!

Born July 26th at 5:26 a.m. weighing 9 lbs. 5 oz. 21 inches long.
Born via c-section after 22 hours of labor including 2 hours of pushing.
Our birth mom K is trully amazing!!
K is doing well. Really well. She even felt up to coming to the NICU to see Emily this evening. She has been walking here and there and is feeling better every second.
Emily is in the NICU because her blood sugars have been low. Although they seem to be under control now, she is doing well, but they are still monitoring her for a while longer. She will hopefully be released tomorrow from the NICU and be able to go to the regular nursery.
The last two days have been overwhelming in so many ways. I will write our birth story soon, when I can find the words to without bawling.
I'll post pics when we get home and I can edit the size so it doesn't lock up blogger. She is trully beautiful!
