Andrea, Congratulations – so happy for you!!!! I’ve been following your posts and your journey – your blog was forwarded to me by someone in the adoption community (I can’t even remember who now!). I am so happy that you are finally on your way to meet your little man. I have enjoyed your posts and have admired your love of your family, religion and living life. This little man is a lucky one!
