I have probably started this post a hundred times in the past 2 days.
This verse says it better than I EVER could:
I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him.
1 Samuel 1:27
Artie and I are proud to announce that we will become parents later this year!! We will be adopting a baby around the 1st of August and we are thrilled!
This could have only been designed by God. Artie and I can not understand how UNBELIEVABLY blessed we are. The past two days we have just been looking at each other in disbelief. I have been walking around in a big pink fluffy cloud. A fluffy cloud filled with kittens and puppies. And cotton candy and snickers bars. The best two days of my life. YOU HAVE NO IDEA!
I can not wait to share the journey with you. August seems so far away.
I have some others news that I am equally excited about but I can not say what it is yet...as it is not my good news to share!!!
Right now the baby is almost 13 weeks along and the heart beat is at 160 bpm. The doc says everything looks great! So I looked up all the info for a 13 week old baby and learned that our sweet pea is the size of a medium shrimp. Ha! It also has fingerprints now. Amazing.

I am sure it is the cutest medium sized shrimp there is!
Artie and I decided to take a stroll through Babies R Us tonight. Oh my. Overwhelming is probably an understatement. I am so glad we have lots of support and lots of advice givers.
We will be announcing it at church this Sunday and I can not wait. I know we have had lots of prayer since the beginning of this journey. Our church family will be pleased as punch...we will be getting a new Sunday School student soon! Hehe.
Have a great week everyone!!
