Guess what we're having?

A BABY!!! A BABY!!! Adoption - the miracle of life for us!! A little over a month ago, a little Angel, a birthmom, our birthmom, Debbie, selected us for adoption!!!
Before we go into details. We are going to Boise to see Debbie on Tuesday to find out together whether we are having a boy or girl!! So you only have 2 days to place your vote for boy or girl!!

Now to some details:

The birthmother's name is Debbie. About 2 months ago, one of Lynette’s family friends Marc reached out to Lynette via facebook and started asking questions about adoption and what was the best way he could help a friend of his who was considering adoption (we didn't know who it was that he was helping at the time). The friend, turned out to be Debbie, who we also knew. When Marc told us that Debbie was not only considering adoption, but also considering us as adoptive parents, we were instantly excited because Debbie is totally a sweet, beautiful, talented girl.
After meeting with LDS family services, Debbie became comfortable with adoption and us as adoptive parents – which is where we come into the story . . .
One night, Lynette and I were watching one of our go to TV shows (24) when Debbie reached out to Lynette via text and Lynette and her shared an amazing string of texts. Debbie brought us to tears as she told us she wanted us to be her baby’s adoptive parents as we could feel the love she has for her baby. Debbie was very sweet and warm in the messages and told us she was comfortable with us telling others that she has chosen us to adopt her unborn baby and that she has a great feeling of comfort about the decision right now.

Thanks for all of your guys prayers and fasts for us so far, we really, really appreciate it and love you guys! We ask that you now also include Debbie and the baby in your prayers!

(And remember to vote – boy or girl)
