Gabriel is doing great! He had his 1st well baby appointment and everything is looking good :) Gabriel is now weighing in at 7lbs 13 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. Gabe gained 11oz in 5 days but didn't get any longer. No wonder we thought his cheeks were looking a little fuller! Gabriel is amazing and we are just basking in the love this little boy has given us.
Gabe in his cloth diaper and cover... he's so cute!

Please pray for Gabriel's neurology appointment on Friday. He's positively perfect right now and we just pray that the doctor says that the schzyencephaly is causing no problems :) Please also keep Gabe's birth family in your prayers as well as our family and friends laid off and looking to be called back or for a new job.

Congrats on your new baby!!! I found your blog while looking at Kelly's Korner'r blog... I to had a difficult time starting a family. I had over 2 1/2 years of infertility, 2 miscarriages, several surgeries and now my precious miracle baby from god... I had her via emergency c-section... now I have recently been diagnosed with DM/Lupus/RA... we are getting through it... And we have our precious angel...
I am so glad you now have a little one :0)... What is schzencephaly???

I actually found your blog through a comment you make on Kelly's Korner. I adopted our first baby last summer, so I was drawn to your good news. Many congratulations! Enjoy the ride. :)

Hi Meredith! I think most organizations that do international would do domestic. Try Abba Fund or Lifesong- they are BOTH GREAT! :0) Amy
