Our first baby purchase!!!!

The BOB Revolution stroller

I have always dreamed of having a jogging stroller when I had a baby....Now, I have been very weird about buying anything for baby before we actually are matched with a birthmother, but I have been sooo excited and can't wait until I can go to Babies R Us and actually pick out things for OUR baby!! So anyway, my sister texted me the other day and told me that her husband's cousin was selling their BOB stroller because they are having another baby and they want to get a double. It is very gently used and they were selling it for almost half the price of a new one! I was so excited but still kinda hesistant to make a baby purchase, but Rob said, "yeah, lets just got ahead and get it." So we did!! Yeah!!! I can't wait to put a baby in there!!

We were supposed to have our home visit yesterday but, our SW got sick, so we are going to try again next Saturday. We are still working on our "Birthparent letter". We just sent in our 3rd draft to see what they say. It is kinda like a huge college project, where 90% of your grade depends on that one thing. That's how it feels. It is kinda stressful. I will glad when all of this is done and we are just waiting to be matched.

Well we don't really have much else going on. We are getting ready to go see both of our parents who are in Florida for the winter, here in a couple weeks, so that is exciting! Hope everyone is doing well!

Thankful Thursday

This picture was taken almost exactly 5 years ago since that little baby in the pink just turned 5 on December 28th! I couldn't be more thankful for these kids! I just found this pic when I was looking for pics for our adoption profile and it just made me smile. They were 6, 4, 2, and a tiny baby and now look at them......
11, 9, 7, 5.....

I just thank God for the wonderful gift that he gave me when he created my nieces and nephews!
