He's here!

As hard as it is for us to fathom, our wait is over! He's here! It feels surreal, so utterly natural and right on the one hand, and unbelievable on the other. Birthmom K has signed relinquishments, and they've been acknowledged by the state. There are a few more hurdles to get through before he's officially, officially a member of our family, but we're pretty confident, and he's felt like our kid for a while now.

But the adventure isn't over. In many ways it's only just beginning. Maintaining an open relationship with K, watching him grow, making tough parenting decisions - it's all ahead of us. For now, however, we're going to revel in this awesome, quiet moment before the ride starts up again.

So without further ado...

You have no idea how much hope this post gives me. My wife and I just started our official waiting. It's been almost two months and I already have come face to face with doubts that it will ever really happen for us. Seeing your post this morning has given my heart exactly the boost that it needed. I couldn't be happier for you three. I have followed your journey for a while now and I have related to so many of the things that you have said. It is my hope that one day I will be able to relate to this post as well. Thank you and enjoy every single second of your new family.
