Our little blessing...

...has made it home!!! For several reasons, I have not had the freedom to update on our adoption journey. I plan on "backtracking" in order to chronicle the events of the past two months...leading to our precious little gift...Baker Tyler-Neil...


Baker came into our home two days after he was born. We are loving every minute spent with our little man! Every tear shed, every question raised, every disappointment is now completely worth it as we gaze at his sweet face. We feel completely blessed that God called us on this journey of adoption...we know Baker was always meant to be in our family!

How did we come up with his l-o-n-g name, you ask?! :) Well, Baker is a family name on Warren's side, Tyler is a name the birthparent's chose, and Neil is a name on my family's side. Learning to use that hyphen in Kindergarten might be difficult for our little Baker--but, I love the symbolism of all of the names. After all, he IS a part of Warren's family, my family, and the birth family.

This week our little guy celebrates his one month birthday! :)...Time has already flown!






I look forward to documenting (in between Baker's naps) these past two difficult, yet extremely amazing, months. Until then, we will continue praising God...from whom all blessings flow!
