Baby boy!!!

Hi everyone!

David and I are delighted to announce that we have accepted a referral for a 3 month baby boy! We're beyond thrilled and are charging forward, hopefully quickly, with the rest of the process. We're unable to post a photo or other details on the blog until we get through court. We can say he's beautiful, wonderful, speaks multiple languages, and demonstrates natural inclinations toward modern dance, baseball, and quantum physics. At this point, we're not so sure when we'll get a court date. The courts close for the summer during the first week of August so we're white knuckling it hoping to get through. Depending upon court, we're looking at a 3 to 5 month wait before travel.

More details to come! Thanks to everyone for your support!!

Shelby and David

That is such wonderful news and we're so happy for you - you and Dave are going to be fantastic super hip parents!!
You'll have to go on a world tour so that everyone gets to meet him - I can see the blue satin tour jackets now.
I will pass along the wisdom that my sisters so eloquently gave to me - "get as much sleep in now as you can and get over any fear of touching poop and vomit with your bare hands"
