Great news and funny stories

We are adopting a newborn who is due to make his/her arrival on July 9th!!!! We just met the birth mother a week ago. It has been one crazy week! She just found out that she has to be on bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy. She has an incompetent cervix and is having a procedure done today to help with that. We are excited to be parents again and are praying for her as the pregnancy continues.
Here are a couple of funny stories about the kids. Heidi got a baby doll for Christmas and named it Always Wanted because she has always wanted a sister. Our birth mother told Heidi that she would try her hardest to give her a sister! Another Heidi one: She was telling me about the movie she was watching while we were at Knecht's and she couldn't remember the title. She finally told me it was called The Heroes from the Underneath. They watched Rescuers Down Under. Owen's nursery teacher said that on Sunday he kept carrying around a baby and giving it a bottle and looking for a blanket. Then, he kept saying "My baby is in Indianapolis." Our birth mother was visiting Indy, but doesn't live there. Yesterday we did a video chat with our birth mother. She is in the Army, which totally surprised Noah. He didn't know that girls could be in the Army. He was showing off his muscles to her and said that he was stronger than her. Not yet, Noah. The kids are pretty excited to have a new brother or sister. We find out if it's a boy or girl in the next couple of weeks!
