We've Been Picked!

As many of you know we have been in the adoption process again for awhile. Well, we have finally been picked!! But this time we have been picked by God, not a birth mother.
Yes, my mom is pregnant! 15 weeks to be exact. We are so excited and are looking forward to a new baby being in the family. Mom has been really sick these last few weeks and is just now starting to feel better so we have been really busy! Please pray that everything will go well and Mom and baby will continue to be healthy.
