it finally happened…we started out as 2, and ended up as 3!  little sterling is finally here!!!  we are going to have to admit that he is perfect (of course) and our experience thus far into our 6 hour journey of parenthood has been good!   we have sooooooo much to learn, but sterling has truly been wonderful!

 there’s some must-see-or-die video available… simply click the picture below:

there have been a few people that have been referred to this post by anti-adoption groups, feminist groups or orphan-hate groups. if you are one of these people or are somehow unable to understand why we would want to bring a child into our family forever, or if you need to be cruel to other people in order to resolve your semantics problems,  then we encourage you to click on this link to a related post instead of leaving a hateful or rude comment.  thank you.

    Just food for thought and a gracious way of replying to those who question your method of parenting and adoption.

    Lots of people see things in very different and passionate ways.
