As I write this, my new born son is laying in the hospital. Crying out for food, attention, or maybe just because. I want nothing more than to go to him, squeeze him tight, and tell him that he has a mother and father that loves him more than he'll ever know.

I also want to tell him that he has a Heavenly Father that created him just the way he is, and specifically for us. And that he is an absolute blessing from the Lord. One that we have prayed for, for a very long time.

Lincoln Michael, our son, your forever family is here, and is anxiously waiting to come pick you up tomorrow. We love you with all our hearts!!! 'Til tomorrow......

Patience Is A Virtue....That I Don't Have!!

     I've always thought of myself as a very patient man. With pretty much everything in life, I can just sort of go with the flow. However, something has changed of late. Over the past couple days, I have convinced myself that our little Christmas baby is coming early (even though his due date is now the 14th), so early that I'm literally staring at my phone all day, waiting for it to ring. I don't want to go to the gym; don't want to play guitar; nothing. Please pray that I don't have a nervous breakdown before he gets here!!!

     Also, I tracked our dossier for our Ethiopian adoption and it's en route to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Set to arrive Tuesday, December 11th. Yay!! Hopefully soon after it's arrival we'll know our wait list number :) Might even work out that we have our son and find out our wait list number on the same day (would be an awesome day).

     Thank you all so much for supporting us along our journey. We have the best friends, family, and followers anyone could ever ask for. Without each and every one of you, we wouldn't be where we are today. God bless you all!
