You just never know where the road will lead!

All this time we've traveled this crazy long road of adopting (May 12, 2005 - July 29, 2008!), I never would have dreamed the road would lead to a location only 1.4 miles from my front door!

I also never dreamed the gift at the end of the road would be a newborn baby and a BOY at that! But what a precious boy he is.

I'm sorry I've not been on to keep you all posted. I'm sure I'll get better, but this newborn stuff is all new to me! He's so tiny and the reality of having complete responsibility over one so small is at times overwhelming, especially during one of those stretches wehre I've only had a couple hours sleep!

I'll try and post more soon. But until then I'll share some more pictures of C, our little man!

Here he is with D's spotted leopard Webkinz. If you've seen webkinz, you know they're not very big! I need to get a specific stuffed animal, like Debbie does with Izzy, so you can see how he grows. I'm ready for him to sprout a bit! Here's a "freebie" of Big Sister! These are her Big Sister flowers, and she looked so pretty after church yesterday that I just had to get a picture of her!

She's gorgeous and he's adorable of course.
I got my dog at Garden Ridge although I'm sure you can find something somewhere else.

Big sister looks so pretty in the picture with her flowers. And so happy to be holding her baby brother. Congratulations on your new addition. He is small, but a cutie for sure. Elaie

D is looking like such a BIG GIRL these days! So pretty!

We know you're working hard to get adjusted and that having a newborn is REALLY hard, so just post when you can. You have a few more important things to do at the moment!

Oh Suz! He is just perfect! And what a beautiful big sister he has.
I'm so happy for you!!!!

I know it is not what you planned, but you three look like the perfect family in that picture (except of course, we need to squeeze hubbie in). Just beautiful.
Hey, I've got some exciting news! We're going to be neighbors again! So, I'm looking forward to giving that boy some lovin' real soon.

Wow Suz! 45 comments on your last post, that's crazy! You had everyone on the edge of their seats!=)
I am so happy that your little one is home with you now. What a truly miraculous blessing!
Much Love,
PS. D is just beautiful!

C will grow I promise my little girl is already in 3 months and she is just 9 weeks. He is such a cuttie, and big sister is such doll. You are very blessed. I am very happy for you and your family.

I'M IN SHOCK HERE!!! So happy for you. Molly's b-parents are also married. What a whirlwind! Enjoy that newborn. They change so much and so quickly. After having two newborns, I think it would be hard for me to miss that newborn stage again with international adoption.

Your family deserved this little miracle!!!!!!!!!!

D looks like the perfect big sis--beautiful and happy.

It's crazy where the road leads, but perfect.
