There is no way to prepare yourself for what I'm about to tell you so just sit down, prepare yourself accordingly, and possibly grab an adult beverage....

Danny and I have a CHILD!

If you're freaking out right now take comfort in knowing that we are too! (But in a such a fun, excited way!!!!) Danny and I began the domestic adoption process about 2 years ago-ish. One week ago from today (an hour or two before the symposium weekend kicked off, mind you) I got a call that there was a birthmother who had chosen us and was due super soon. We met her for the first time on Monday and watched her deliver our baby as of 2:57pm yesterday.

How's that adult beverage doing? Can I have a sip?

In all seriousness, we feel so lucky, so blessed, AND SO EXCITED!

I acknowledge I've been a mom for only 22ish hours but I will now share my philosophy on parenting. (I plan to be an incredibly "know-it-all"-ish mother.)

Good, right? I hope you were taking notes. (Thanks Anne-Marie for texting me this yesterday!)

That's it for now y'all. More next week on her name and whatnot.

So much love!
