Submitted to Court!

Our Mighty Men,

Today we got the MOST exciting news we've gotten since the day we found out God chose us to be your parents. Mrs Susan wrote to us to tell us we are submitted to court! That means that in a few weeks, we'll find out what day we can finally come be WITH you! (That is all we can think about!)

Tonight Mommy has been quizzing Daddy on material for his polymers midterm. He won't be in classes much longer, but Mommy will probably get to quiz you two a lot in the years to come! We have so much we can't wait to share with you. Your Daddy is working so hard these days. He has filed a patent application already (with another in the works), today he got the highest quiz grade in his class, he's applying for fellowships, and all he talks about is you. Today a saxophone quartet came from Virginia Tech to play for Mommy's band classes. They played Bach's "Toccata and Fugue." Mommy loves listening to good music - almost as much as she loves sharing it with people she loves. (Today, her students. Tomorrow, YOU!) You are getting so big! At 7 months old, you are 13 and 15 pounds. Mommy and Daddy just got pictures of you wearing the matching onesies we sent to you months ago - precious! You are so cuddly and we'd do anything to snuggle you right now. (We'll make up for lost time in just a few months!)

Sweet ones, tonight we are praying... We are praising God for YOU! Praising Him for keeping you safe and healthy, and praising Him for giving us reason to be so excited - so soon we will be together! So many of our friends, your grandparents and aunts and uncles are all praising Him for the same reason. We're praying that you will get lots of hugs and play time with those sweet nannies who are with you tonight. We're praying that God would keep getting us ready to be best parents to you we can be! We are thanking Him for this new and special joy that comes from knowing we get to have you in the rest of our lives. And finally, we are praying that you'll rest well tonight as your Heavenly Father watches over you.



  1. I love this. I am so excited to read about your amazing journey. Hopefully one day (soon) our boys can play together.
    Praying for you, Cary, and the boys during this exciting time.

  2. Thanks, Marcie! I hadn't realized how close in age our boys are!! So much fun to be had when they get here. :) Thanks so much for your prayers.
