I hope you’ll excuse me for getting a bit personal today, something I don’t do often on this blog. My heart has been overwhelmed with the joy and my mind hopelessly preoccupied for the last week. I’m so happy to announce the arrival of my new nephew, Lucas Alexander. My entire family has been anxiously awaiting his arrival and holding our breath through the adoption process which is now complete. We’ve all been so emotionally invested. One of my sisters commented, “I wonder how long it will take before I can talk about it without crying.” That’s how I feel. I’m so grateful for the beautiful birth mother and father who unselfishly made the decision to place little Lucas with Ryan and Alicia. Adoption is my fave. My family is my fave. And baby Lucas is absolutely my fave.
Doesn’t it look like he’s smiling? He’s just so teeny tiny.
