My first blog post ever shared the news with our family and friends.
It's been a long 20 months of waiting.
We switched agencies after a year.
Then switched to an independent adoption at the beginning of this month.
A few days later, we got some news.
About a baby boy in need of a family.
Without hesitation, we said yes.
His name will be Tyson Henry Word.
Here's the video of us seeing him for the first time. :)
We shared the news with our family over skype this past weekend. We tried to capture their first reaction on camera as we told them.
(We hadn't told anyone we were doing an independent adoption, so this was a BIG surprise to everyone!)
|My Parents in NJ. Sorry we cut your face off, Dad.|
|Brian's Mom in TN- in disbelief!|
|In tears after we told her that his middle name was for her father. :)|
|Brian's Dad in TN- this is his excited face, I promise. :)|
|Brian's brother in CO- excited to be an uncle again!|
|Brian's sister and brother-in-law in TN- Can't wait for their seven month old to meet his cousins!|
|My sister in NJ (who is going to kill me with this picture taken at 8am looking like she has short, crazy hair....and we had the flash on the camera by accident.... she was totally surprised and so excited for us!|
God is always on time.
Though we haven't always wanted to trust that, we know that it's true.
Thank you for your prayers as we have waited these many months. We would love to have you continue to pray as we walk through the steps of finalizing the adoption and traveling to get him.
We can't wait to introduce you to him in hopefully 4-6 months!
And I promise- ONE day you will actually SEE pictures of our kiddos on here. :)
