Cribs and formula and babies, oh my!

Long story short, it was mutual adoration, we had a great time with V, and she signed papers TODAY.

We pick up our daughter on Thursday, February 16th.




ACK!

Patti-Katelynn's Mom and #2 on the way said...

Hi, I learked on FF. Can you believe that you're gonna have a baby in your home and in your life? I'm glad you didn't have to wait much longer as it's already been such a long journey for both of you. Please post pictures of your baby! Lots to do in the next couple weeks huh? Many blessings to you and yours. p.s. my Mom gave her baby boy up for adoption when she was 17 and although it was the hardest thing she has ever done in her life she did it for the baby so the baby would have the life she couldn't provide for him.
