So far, so good!

Well, it looks like things are going quite well!  We are chatting with the birth parents via email and enjoying getting to know them a little better.  We are cautiously optimistic at this point and hope with all hopes that this goes on without a problem. 

I'm going to repost this picture...
Notice the white dresser is NOT the one we got from Babies R Us.

This dresser is very special to me.  When I was a baby and my family was just starting out, we didn't have much.  However, my father bought this dresser for me.  It was originally just a pink dresser.  My mother being the artist she is drew pictures of Raggedy Ann and Andy and glued them to the sides of the dresser.  She used the piggy banks on top of it now as a guide to what she wanted to draw.  I have had this dresser with me ever since!  When I was in high school, we repainted my bedroom and I painted this dresser white but made sure not to cover up the art work on the sides.  And, now it's proudly going to be used in my baby's room.  And, as our room is prepared for the baby, we are ready...
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.   -John 14:3
I hope everybody has a great day!  Keep praying for a happy, healthy baby and for him to grow up in a good home!  Give us the ability to continue our new relationship with the birth parents, and wish ALL the happiness in the world to them!
