Wow! This is amazing!

We are having a blast...sleepless nights and all!

I can't wait to share our story with you and about getting to meet baby Manny's sweet birthmom.

It is truly a miracle that we got to bring him home the night we did. We simply went to meet her and thought we'd have to go back the next day to pick him up. We were definitely praising Jesus on the way home...it was surreal.

I'll surely write the rest of the story soon, but for now pictures will have to do.










**Sorry these last two are small....not sure what's up with that, but I figure they are better than nothing. :)

Emily,
Had to check out your precious new one after reading your comment on the LPM blog. What a blessing! I just realized your connection to the Daniel Doss band. :) Daniel and the band were at our church (Council Road, Bethany, OK) a year or so ago. (there was some kind of connection there I think). We were blessed. Congratulations to you all! God is so good!

Can't wait to hear more Emily. I am so glad we happened to sit next to each other, I am so glad we got to share our verses together and I am SO glad my new friend has a new baby! Thank you God for the trials and thank you God for the unspeakable joy that comes out of them!!!

Hi Emily! Just another crazy-excited Siesta coming over from the LPM blog! Congrats on a beautiful addition to your family; he looks like a terribly handsome little bundle of joy!

Susan in OKC- I was there in OKC too! I was at the table selling T-shirts and CD's. Daniel Doss (of the Daniel Doss Band) is my hubby!!!

Emily,
Too wild you all were at my church. I probably met you. I bought a CD.:) And I love it! I was at the Siesta celebration in Houston. Wish I would've met you (or met you again):) Once again, your new baby boy is precious!
