I know, I've been kind of lame posting but:

A: I will try to be better at posting more frequently.
B: This news is TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!

I'm sure most of you reading this are aware of this but for those of you who aren't, Amanda and I have been trying to adopt a baby for a while now.  We found out several years ago that we are unable to have babies and so, after much prayer and research, we decided our best option to start our family would be to adopt a baby.  The journey has been humbling and hard at times but always so fulfilling knowing we are going to start our family.  Well, after some waiting and prayer and much anticipation, I am pleased to announce that....


That is right ladies and gentlemen, Steven is going to be a daddy!!!!  

We were contacted a few weeks ago by an awesome birth-mom who viewed our profile on an on-line database.  After much prayer from her and the birth-father (and from Amanda and I), we were chosen to be the adoptive couple for their baby!  

We also had the opportunity to meet the birth mother today and I have to say, I couldn't have imagined a more perfect experience!  I was so impressed by her and her mother.  I had to leave for a work commitment so I only got to hang out with them for about 40 minutes.  I look forward to getting to know them more in the months and years to come!  

As for the baby, we don't know much other than he/she is healthy and due October 17th.  That means I'm going to be a daddy in:

164 Days, 3 Hours, 23 Minutes

Without further adieu, presenting for the first time ever in semi-full color, our baby, also known (for the time being) as Baby S!

I know what you're thinking and I couldn't agree more...that is one good lookin' noggin!

Thank you to all for the prayers and thoughts on our behalf.  We are truly blessed to have such great family and friends in our lives!
