An exciting day!

Today was a very exciting day at one of my campuses. I spoke with one of the teachers at great length a few months ago about her daughter and the problems that her and her husband were facing with infertility. This couple has been trying for 4+ years to have a baby. They have been through everything that comes along with infertility. They have been through hormones, IUI's and IVF. The IVF was successful once but she lost the baby soon after the procedure was confirmed. They did some more testing and found out that her husband was not going to be able to produce a baby. They went through a time of grief and confusion. He told her that he would understand if she wanted to separate. He wanted her to be a mom more than anything. She brought up the adoption issue, her husband quickly shut that door. He told her that he didn't want to adopt. A few months went by and her husband started to have a change of heart. He wanted to be a Dad just as much as she wanted to be someones Mom. He came to her one evening and had all of the information on an adoption agency. He had already contacted them and started the necessary procedures to get the ball rolling. A couple of weeks later they were hosting an adoption agent at their home. They got the phone call and everything was ready to go. They were going to FINALLY be parents. The agent told them that he has never had an adoption case last more than a year. a year or less they are going to have their little bundle of joy!! As I stood on the playground listening to this new proud grandmother tell me this story I had tears come to my eyes. She and I jumped up and down and hugged. You would have thought she had just won the lottery and in a way she did. She is going to be a new grandmother to a baby that desperately needs these parents. They are going to be able to give this baby so much love it's unreal. She was telling me that they probably won't know what sex the baby is until it is born. The agency they are going through really encourages the birth moms to not find out what they are having because it makes it easier when the time comes for the baby to go home with the adoptive parents. I hugged this teacher again and told her that she better spoil that baby rotten. She informed me that it had already been taken care of! The power of prayer is an amazing thing. We have been praying that God would bless them with a baby and he has! Now we just need to pray that God will find a woman who loves this couple so much that she would give them the ultimate gift.

National Infertility Awareness Week

I wanted to post on this issue and let everyone know that it is National Infertility Awareness Week. Many women are affected by infertility. I am willing to bet that there is someone you know that is going through this. For me it is my friend Tiffany. She and her husband have been trying for over 3 years to have a baby. They are going to be amazing parents someday and I know that that their day will come. I'm hoping and praying that it comes very soon. You should check out her blog She is posting on issues that have to do with infertility everyday this week.

It's official.....

I can't make my blog look good! I'm going to bed.

Royally screwed up my blog!

I attempted to update and give my blog a facelift and ended up completely screwing it up! UGH!!! Hopefully I can figure it out, or my good friend Ape will help me (I'm not beyond begging her).

Goodbye G6

Goodbye G6....I have enjoyed having you around, but it is time for me to move on to bigger and better things. I am saying my final goodbye to my car tomorrow. I'm kind of sad, but mostly happy. Hopefully I will find a car that I LOVE and can't live without. We have narrowed it down to an Equinox and a Malibu. I will make my decision tomorrow and hopefully come home with a new car, or have ordered one. Any advice is much needed. Which one should I get.......AND I'm NOT getting red no matter what. My family doesn't think I can do it, but I'm going black or white!!

Where has time gone???

Where has the time gone? I feel like yesterday we were driving to the hospital. He is 8 months old now and is ALL over the place! He has mastered the crawl and is trying to pull up on things. He can even crawl on the wood floors now. He thinks it's hilarious! I was eating lunch today and there was a baby that was so tiny and I just sat there and I honestly couldn't remember Carson being that little (maybe he wasn't that little...we all know he was a beast, but you know what I mean). It made me a little sad, but then I thought about his cute little personality and how he is so proud of himself when he crawls. Say a prayer for us while we really start baby proofing our house! He has become MOBILE!!!!

First Boo Boo

I came home from work today and my boys were in bed napping. I went in and gave Zack a kiss and he told me that Carcar had bonked his head on the floor while I was on my way home. He told me that he didn't have a knot or anything and he had cried for about 10 mins then went to sleep. Of course I'm thinking about a concussion and how you aren't suppose to let them sleep. I let both of them sleep and Car woke up about an hour later. Zack brought him into the living room and a HUGE knot had come up while he was sleeping and it was already purple. I wanted to take him somewhere so a Doctor could look at him. Zack was willing to do whatever I thought we needed to do. SO......I called Mimi, she came by and looked at him and said that it was good that the goose egg had popped up. She told me that we didn't need to take him to the hospital and that she would call a family friend who was a physician to see what he said. He told my mom the same thing that she told us. Once I knew my baby was okay it was time to document the for real boo boo. He was enjoying his little photo shoot! Speaking of photo shoots......we were suppose to be getting family pictures made this weekend, but I called and canceled. Didn't think Carson's huge goose egg would be good for pictures. Mom said that the knot might look better tomorrow, but the bruise should be worse. SO, needless to say our first Easter pictures will be some to remember. My camera doesn't give this gorgeous goose egg justice!!!
