We're having a . . .

BOY!!! (This is Devin making the post and I am not as blog savvy as Lynette so I don't have colors).

We had an amazing visit with Debbie (our birthmom) and her family on Tuesday - and it was such an undescribable experience that she invited us to come to the ultrasound. Seeing the baby, watching him move and knowing that he is healthy (and a boy:)) were experiences that Lynette and I didn't know if we would have - but thanks to Debbie we were so fortunate to be able to attend the ultrasound. Most adoptive couples don't get to be there for that, so it was very special to us.

At the end of the Ultrasound, Debbie asked us if we had any names picked out (because she wanted to start calling him by his name as he kicked), and Lynette and I smiled as we said we had picked out a name like six years ago! So, his name will be . . . Austin Craig. Austin is just a name we like and Craig is my father's name.

Thanks for all of your prayers and support - please keep praying for Debbie!

We love you guys and could not have been so strong and optimistic for so long without you guys!
