my son...

sounds weird but it feels right. meet grayben andrew nolen.



i love this little boy more than i ever imagined i could love my own biological child. we had less than 3 days to prepare for him but now that we have him it was too long. i know the rest of my life will be about this guy so i'll spare a long blog post now. he is just about the cutest & sweetest thing i've ever seen. sleeping like a champ as i write. i cannot say enough good about adoption. it can be hard but it is hands down the most incredible thing i've ever experienced in my life. grizzlies in yellowstone are still up there though.

much much more to come.

Wow! I am in shock! I feel like I must have missed something, but this is GREAT news. We are so thrilled for you guys! Be sure to find someone to take pictures of you with him b/c I didn't get many (usually being behind the camera myself) and I regret that so much. I can't wait to see more pictures in the coming days/weeks/months.....

Congrats to you and Erin both!!

i like this picture of the bride and groom, but i'd rather see your new family as the banner pic--any chance of that?
