Picture Day

Today we had "formal" pictures with Heidi Peters. I wanted to have another picture to add to our hallway wall before we welcome Fisher home. We are excited to think the next time we have these type of pictures taken it will be the 4 of them (or 5 of them if Tate has his way and we bring home 2 brothers -- Fisher and Mario!).

Tate's Joke

Tate wakes up so happy this morning and he told me this joke and could not stop laughing. "What do you call an upside down triangle, a heart with no bumps".

So our journey begins....

We could not be more excited about our adoption of a little boy from Ethiopia. We started thinking about adding to our family this past fall. We felt all was calming down in our world and everyone was doing well that we could talk about it. I guess I ruled out having anymore children because of Ellie's struggles but realized she is on her own path and doing great on it! I can tell you we would not have done this without Ruthanne and her support in showing us the process. We decided for sure we wanted to adopt in January after Peter came home from being gone for a week and missed him a ton and he missed us a ton and we thought this is a great life, our family, 3 beautiful healthy children and we both wanted to add one more to it!

So this begins our journey to one special little boy in Ethiopia that we believe is meant to be ours whom we have named Fisher.
