If you read my last post, you know that we were surprised this week to find out that we’re having twin boys!

Here you can see them curled up together, both with their fists (those aren’t feet!) up by their heads.

We got to see the boys squirming around like crazy during the ultrasound, which was a lot of fun, and they were certainly not shy about letting us know that they were boys. Here’s some individual pictures of them: Continue reading

After the unbelievably loving response that I got from Tuesday’s post, I have to start this post with a thank you to my readers! I can’t count the messages, comments, texts, and emails that I got from you guys, all sending prayers our way. It just goes to show that I wasn’t kidding about that Romans 12:15 stuff, you guys have that verse written on your hearts.

I thought that now would be a good time to let you guys know some more specific ways you can be praying for us during this next step of our adoption.  Continue reading
