Well everybody just hold on tight today, mkay? This is not your typical Monday. (Well, not for us, at least.) We have waited until we felt it was the right time to share this news publicly and today is that day 🙂 Christian and I are thrilled to officially announce our news…
It feels amazing to share it with you all! (And yet kind of strange for me to write this right now and not have anyone physically in front of me to squeal and clap real fast with, which is what I do when really, really good things happen.) (I’m still totally doing it by myself.)
Anytime someone announces new news, especially if a little babe is involved, a million questions tend to be asked, which I do understand. So for that reason, I just wanted to clarify a few things. I am so proud of this space, Ember Grey, and the community it has created. I love, love, love learning each of your stories, as well as sharing parts of my own. However, it has always been important to me throughout this blogging journey to share only my stories, and if any of them are stories about other people in my life, they have been approved by those people to share in this space. (Well, most of them anyway) 😉 I will never share a story that is not mine to share. The actual details of our adoption story is not only my story, it is the story of our son or daughter. It will be the special, precious story of our family… our little unit, and I intend to protect that and honor that with all that I am. So, I will not be sharing adoption details that involve our son or daughter on this space, or anywhere else for that matter. I will definitely share with you guys the day our family of two becomes a family of three though 🙂 (As well as some nursery details because ohhh myyy gosh, it’s all so freaking cute.)
In the meantime, what I will be sharing is our adoption journey, or rather – the amazing and beautiful way in which we were led to and on this path. The details of this entire adventure make up a story of His faithfulness and love and glory- and I can’t wait to share it with you all this next year.
Until then, I hope that you all will share in our COMPLETE excitement and gratefulness over this news as we wait for the person Jesus has created just for us, and us for them. (My heart could burst!!!) This has been my most favorite news to share… with anyone… ever…. in my whole, entire life. And much like many expecting mothers, all I want to do is cry (tears of gratitude) all. day. long. That, and jump up and down. While eating chips and salsa. And donuts. (Because, you know, cravings.)
Is it any wonder as to what I’m grateful for today?? Shoot. Queue the tears again.
