I am crying Laura, happy tears! Somehow, I believed that those delays were leading to a happy ending and that a miracle would happen here.

It is a miracle. I can only imagine the relief and surprise and joy you must be feeling this morning.

I just couldn't be happier for the four of you! The four of you...that sounds just perfect!

P.S. I am now going to bring my kids to the computer to show them the baby that they have been praying for these last weeks. They will be so happy!

Hey Laura, I have been watching your blog religiously for the past year. I have said many a prayers for your family and have thought of you so very often. I was afraid to check this morning, thinking you again would be delayed. I was so happy and thrilled to see the most amazing news. Tears filled my eyes. I know this has been such a difficult journey, but look at the most precious end result. I could not be happier for all of you. He is beautiful!!!! I guess you ended up giving Chad the best birthday gift of all. Congrats to you all!!!!

Derrick, Alysia, and Levi said...

Oh Laura!!!! I have goosebumps! That is EXACTLY what I was checking in to hear this morning! I already checked several times earlier and there wasn't anything yet and I was getting really worried for you. I'm soooooooo glad to hear this news. Our prayers are answered! Congratulations to you all!!! Both your kids are gorgeous! I can't wait to hear about Sara's reaction. Did she wake up to the picture next to her? That is so special. God bless you all.
