A son?

Yep, we might be parents sooner than we thought. As I said in my last post, God has placed a little boy in our path. He was Born July 6th and is a 4lbs 6 oz. Hes a preemie, thats for sure. Unfortunatly His mom is not capable of parenting him (or his 9 other sibblings, they are all in foster care or adopted) so they are looking for a family to adopt him. He is african american and he has down syndrome.

Josh and I have decided to continue on this path. We are seeing where God leads us through this opportunity. I dont have to much info for you all. We are still waiting to get the rest of his medical information, which should come either tomorrow or thursday. The case worker put our information in for background checks so that we can visit him soon. I will update again when we know more.

Josh and I both know that this will be alot of work, but we are excited to see what this little boy has in store for our lives. We are excited about the people we will get to meet and to see the lives that are going to be cahnged because of love this little boy will give. We believe that God calls special people to do special things. I am hopful that this is the start ouf our family and that we will soon have someone calling us mom and dad. Please, please, please pray for us as we have to make a HUGE decision. A decision that will not only change our lives but the lives of people around us! We cant wait to share more info with you when we get it!!
