Drew was born on September 8th at 7:27 p.m. He was 8 pounds 12 oz. and 21 inches long. We were not there but received a phone call about 10 minutes after he arrived. We are now waiting for DNA results, which might take longer because of hurricane IKE. Before Ike, we were told we would know everything by Wednesday. We are praying like crazy that we get him next week. Right now he is in North Houston with a lady from our agency.

Jenna, emailed me and asked if I wanted pictures and I said YES!!!! I decided to post them on here because I want everyone to see what we are PRAYING for. He is the cutest thing!!! Please keep us in your prayers and please include Jenna in them too. What a selfless and courageous act she has done!!! She will FOREVER be a part of our heart.

I will update as soon as we find out anything. The other prospective dad from Houston has not filled out any papers stating yes or no. When he was served with papers he was given a paper of intent (to keep the baby) and a termination paper (terminate his rights) he didn’t fill out either and the deadline was weeks ago. So as of right now we are getting Drew it is just a matter of next week or a few more weeks. We are praying for next week but realize it is out of our hands… we are not in control.

We do thank EVERYONE for their words of encouragement and prayers. We feel the love and it helps us get through the day!!!

ONE LAST THING… Happy Birthday to my Prince Charming!!! Today is his 33rd and I love him so much. He is the peanut butter to my jelly, the peas to my carrots, he is my best friend!!! Happy Birthday Honey… I LOVE YOU!!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaghhhhhh! He is so CUTE! I have been thinking about ya'll every day! We're out "in the country" at my aunt's house because we don't have any power at our house thanks to Ike. Don't know how long we'll be out here....I'm at the public library right now checking my e-mails and was so excited to see that your blog had an update!

Drew is adorable and I can't wait to meet him at the AIM Christmas party!


p.s. is he with Jan? whomoever he's with, at least you know he's in good, loving hands!
