BIG EXCITING news for us && YOUU!!!!

We've got some major news to share!!!!!! Three big things actually. Don't all good things come in threes? I don't think that's the real saying, but just go with it. First things first, this little guy is walking....
 ^^shirt found here

insert sound of me crying. It happened early last week. Started with two steps, then leaped to 7. He doesn't do it all the time, but he is getting scary good at it. It will be no time before he's running. We celebrated his party this past weekend & I'll post pics of that soon. Can't believe he will be one is just a few short days.

Second... our homestudy has been APPROVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Translate: our information will now be given to birth moms who match our profile. So from here on out, we could be getting a call at any moment for a baby. Could take a few days, could take a few months, and praying it won't take a few years. My heart is literally racing as I type, and I'm having a hard time catching my breathe. It's unreal. Actually, surreal (even though I hate that term) because it just doesn't feel like I'm really living this. We've been waiting years to start the process. To have our name out there. To meet our birth mom & son... and now that it could be here at any moment is cray cray cray cray cray! Breathe in, Breathe out, Breathe in, Breath out. I'll be submitting our profile book, birth parent letter, and images today! Our video will hopefully be submitted later this week or early next week (can't wait to share our book & video with you all). This is crazy exciting news for us. We are overwhelmed with joy!

Oh, and the last bit of EXCITING news is just for you!!! I'll be giving more details next week, but mark down October 14-18 on your calenders because you do NOT want to miss what will be happening on this here blog. A MEGA giveaway to raise funds for our adoption!!! I'm talking free ad space on EIGHT big time blogs for all you bloggers out there (excuse me while I name drop the blogs: Bloom, Small Fry, Anderson Crew, The Weigands, Walking in Memphis in high heels, Gloriously Ruined, The Chiffon Diary, and Keep Calm and Carry on)

&&&&&& if you're not a blogger, don't worry you could enter to win EIGHT amazing prizes from some of my favorite Etsy shops. I'm not kidding you will die over what's being given away! I'm secretly bummed I can't enter because this stuff issssss goooooooood.

That's TWO giveaways (you can enter both if you like), and TWO winners!!! And the money raised goes towards our adoption! Be sure to follow along or check back regularly for more details on the giveaway! I'm already blown away how the Lord has allowed it to come together.

I'm serious. Imagine me grabbing your face with both hands and pulling you close & saying in a serious, stern voice "you don't want to miss this giveaway, it will rock your socks off". Then we'll high five and be best friends.

Today is a stinking good day, my friends. A stinking good day.
