As you pick your jaw up off the floor, take a minute to read this. Last June, my Blushing Bride had surgery to correct a recurring issue. The surgery was complete (and normally reserved for women fifteen years her senior). Consequently, we began talking about the possibility of growing our family anyway.

Today, I got the e-mail saying that we are past hurdle number one, and so (just like a first-time father seeing the very first sonogram which brings him to the thought, “this is real; we’re going to have a bay-bee!”) it is becoming real. Just wanted to let you, my faithful reader(s) know so you can pray us through the adoptive process.
