Merry Christmas surprise!

Today we shared our "surprise" with our family... that we are adopting! We have kept it a secret until Christmas time, because traditionally, this is when we typically shared that we were pregnant. (As a matter of fact, last year, we pretended to have an "announcement", and everybody held their breath until we told them that we DIDN'T have an announcement".) It was pretty funny.

This year, we bought 4 copies of the book "Adoption is a Family Affair" by Patricia Irwin Johnston. It is an "adoption 101" guide for the families of those who are adopting. We wrapped them up and gave them as gifts to moms, dads, and grandparents. It was a wonderful way to surprise our families!
