We have a match!

Ok so I deleted the adoption page I had going because it was all girly and had pink stuff on it, but as you can see God had a completely different plan in mind!

We are excited to say that we have been matched with a birthmom. The baby is due next month! Can you believe how fast that was?!?! We couldn't. I don't think we've slept soundly since we found out! We've been super anxious and excited and nervous and every other emotion you could possibly have!

We fly out of Italy the beginning of next month and should hopefully be home by the middle of May.

Our wonderful friend Rhysa is going to watch my evil Chihuahua Peanut and we are still trying to figure out what to do with our other rat dogs. Maybe beg the neighbors to watch them LOL.

I do have the crib set up but the room is still a disaster. I need to sterilize bottles and wash diapers and there is just so much to do and so little time! I will take pics of what we've done so far and post them tomorrow.


This is going to be his first outfit home. Isn't it tiny and adorable?

We are super beyond excited though!

If you would like to help us out with travel and finalization costs please donate at (it works through paypal):

I would like to thank all the people who have donated so far. I'd also like to make a huge public THANK YOU to the bestest friend in the whole wide world! She donated a huge sum to make this adoption possible! We LOVE you JENNIFER!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Look its a little stuffed Peanut going to sleep with baby boy! The mobile is a froggy mobile and I'm going to tell baby boy its his Auntie Meghan and Uncle Tommy and thier future children LOL.
The blue blanket on the back was handmade by our friend Sonja who lives in Michigan.
The crib was given to us by our friend and my hubby's coworker Sanchez. We love it!
The crib set I just got and its froggies! How cute, right?!?!


This has to be like the coolest baby swing ever! We got this from our good friends Rhysa and Codie. Thier brand new little boy also has the same sing. What is super cool about this swing is that it lifts and its a rocker and then a rocking chair when they get older! A three in one how cool is that?!?!


This is the glider we found for 50 bucks on the classifieds. Great deal right?!?! We thought so and of course I had to boy it up and represent for my Dallas Cowboys!

We are cloth diapering! This is one of the brands that we currently have. Its called Nubunz are are adorable (http://www.nubunz.com/). I actually have this color and love it! I still need wash them all though boo laundry LOL. I bought these in both velcro and snaps. They are one size fits all and come with two inserts.



This is the other brand we bought Kawaii diapers. They are a bit different than the Nubunz but I hope they are both nice! These are just snaps. I ordered some velcro from them and I'm still waiting on them! I think they must of gotten lost in the mail either way I'm pretty upset by it. (http://www.theluvyourbaby.com/).

Tiffany- Thanks we do have a name picked out! The hubby has one in particular he loves, but we're not sharing until he's born!

Jusika- Thanks for the offer but one of the hubby's coworkers/friend that just got here is going to stay at house and we're going to let him have our car as well. The dogs love him so its a plus all the way round!
