EXPECTING!

At 52 and 53 yrs old we are expecting through adoption! We are so excited!
This time...

IT'S A BOY!!

He is as adorable as can be!! He turned 4 yrs old on August 25th!

He has had a colostomy since birth and it most definitely needs some medical attention- it does not look good. We got a mini update on him and it said that he changes "the baggy" himself. Oh my, he "just turned 4" and he changes it himself. It made me want to hop on a plane and change it for him. He is our little boy and this Mommy is excited to take care of him!!

Daddy will have fun doing guy things with him and I know the older kids are going to adore him! Anna and ? will be 5 months apart- and I am sure Anna will be bossing him around BUT most likely he will be taller than her! It will be quite a sight and worth a few giggles for the new parents and older sibs!

We are so excited for this sweet little guy to join our crew!!

Stay tuned for a picture and his name!!

I can't say that I am surprised, but I can say how excited I am for you!!!! A boy! How fun.

My heart breaks for him and that he needs someone to care and love him like he is meant to be.

I can't imagine how Anna is going to take it. Drew and Mylee are only 24 days apart (Mylee is older) and Drew towers over her. Luckily Mylee's tiny little body does not hold her back.

Can't wait to hear ALL the details.

Woohoo!!!! SO excited for you!!!!! :)))) I love that you are adopting again so soon. Go, Jean, Go! :)

Diane said...

Congratulations! Your little boy will be so lucky to be in your family! I'm glad to see there are other "crazy" passionate people out there who are still adopting little ones later in life. I'm single and in my upper 40's, possibly adopting an infant from foster care and people think I'm nuts!
