Oh Boy!

We interrupt regular blogging for an important announcement from Kylie...


video

In case you didn't quite catch everything she said (I think her speech is quite clear, but not everyone understands all of her words), take a look at her shirt!


Yep, you read it right! God (through the Chinese Center of Adoption Affairs) has delivered us an unexpected surprise and we have a son! I'm still sorta fuzzy on what we can and can't share about him at this time (because we are still waiting on final approval from the CCAA) but Kylie's expression sums up how we are all feeling! When I can share more about Caleb believe me I will! We are so excited about adding Caleb Lu Tao to our family. By the way, if you see me in person, ask about the photos, I'll be more than happy to show you my beautiful boy!

So in addition to all things pink I'll be picking up more things like these!

Now about that pink stroller...

Ian, Kristi, and Kylie,

Congratulations! How exciting. I think every daddy needs a little girl and every mommy needs a son. It is such a special relationship. Praying for a quick approval and speedy travel. Denise

So I missed a few days and look what has happened. God does bless as he promises and I know that a boy fulfills a desire Kristi has had for a long time as I remember a girls night where you spoke so much of a beautiful baby boy. Can't wait to hear more.

What a blessing! Can't wait to meet Caleb in person. Lord keep him loved and nurtured until Kristi, Ian and Kylie can get there to bring him home.
