Great Adoption Quote

Most everyone who has been involved with adoption has heard this quote before...  But I read it again today, and absolutely love it!  Just wanted to share =)

"Not flesh of my flesh, 
Nor bone of my bone;
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute - 
You weren't born under my heart...
You were born in it."

And, although this is a short post... it wouldn't be complete without some super cute pics of the men in my life...  Here's Reid napping with Daddy =)

Reid after his bath yesterday...I love those huge brown eyes!!!  I keep trying to capture him smiling at us (real smiles)...but no luck so far...I'll get one soon!

Hello...found your blog when I was looking for other bloggers to read. Congrats on your son! He's a precious gift from the Lord no doubt.
My folks had tried for 8 years and kept in 77 they adopted my brother. Then in 80,81 me and my sister came along naturally. Anyway just wanted to say I enjoy your blogs about your family, what a great story.

Hi there! I found your blog off of The Rowe Crew (I went to HS with Jess. Congrats on your precious baby boy. My husband and I adopted our little boy in Aug of '07 and I COMPLETELY understand all of the LOVE, JOY, and THANKFULLNESS you have in your hearts. God truly has blessed your family as much as he as blessed ours. I had tears down my face, just glancing at your posts and looking at pictures. I still remember the first time I saw my little Riley--as if it was yesterday. I just felt compelled to say congradulations and I'm so glad to hear of other stories as wonderful as mine. God Bless.
