We're ready...








We finished the baby's room last night. Following the theme of how God spoke to us about adopting this boy, Erin's decorated his room in Dr. Suess characters. I didn't think we'd be able to finish his room before we went to the hospital but we've had a lot of friends helping us out. Thank you!
Right now, life is good for our little boy. He's safe, warm, well fed, not a care in the world. In just a few hours, he's going to be violently pushed through an opening so small it will turn his well-rounded head into a cone-shape. When he's crying about it might be the first time I use a line I'll use a lot during his life, "sometimes life just sucks." Poor little dude, he has no idea what he's about to go through...
Erin and I are going into the hospital late this evening. Our little boy should be born sometime Thursday morning. We'll officially sign the papers sometime on Friday. This is going to be a beautiful and painful experience, all wrapped into one. Pray for us, our baby, our birthmom and her family.

We will be praying for both of you and this very exciting time in your lives. We're so happy for both of you and know you will make incredible parents. I love the baby room, it looks adorable. Can't wait to meet him!
