Most Exciting News Ever...



So two of our closest friends, Kevin and Corinne, have been trying to have a baby for a few years and continued to be unsuccessful. They had plenty of tests done and could never find anything wrong. They have gone through so much trying to have a baby and after many disappointing months they decided to try and adopt. So for the past six months they have been going through the long process of getting on the adoption list through LDS services. They finally got put on about two weeks ago. Let me just tell you that these two are seriously so amazing and I just knew it wouldn't take them long to get a baby because they have so much to offer. They will make perfect parents. So every day since they got put on the adoption list I have thought about them wondering, "Has someone looked at their profile today?" or "Has someone considered them today?". So Corinne called me on Thursday afternoon and asked if we could come stop by. We suspected that possibly they had some good news for us but didn't want to get our hopes up. We dropped by on Thursday night to find baby stuff sprawled out all over. So they got a call Thursday afternoon and was told that a woman that lived fairly close to the area had gone into labor the night before and had decided to place her baby and had chosen them. They had only 30 minutes to decide if they wanted him. So they confirmed that they wanted him and had to go buy everything that night, so they could go get him the next morning at 11:00. They had less than 24 hours to plan for him (I cannot even imagine). So they brought him home on Friday and let me just say that he is perfect. They named him Austin Wayne. Isn't he cute? This is such a blessing for them and such an answer to many many prayers. There aren't two people more deserving of such an amazing blessing. This was such an exciting thing that I couldn't help but share (sorry its so long).
By the way since they were only on the adoption list for two weeks they set a record in Ogden for how quickly they got a baby.

That is so great for your friends. Tell them to put a good word in for Brett & Nikki they're trying to adopt through LDS also. They've been going to classes in fact Court just went with them & my mom this last thursday. They really need a baby, Ethan has been dying for a baby brother or sister ever since I can remember. A few weeks ago he & Nikki were in walmart and he saw a lady with a baby and he begged Nikki to go ask her if she wanted her baby or if he could have it. It's really sad he just wants one so bad. He asked me once why I have 2 babies, kindalike he couldn't understand why I had 2 and he had none. I breaks my heart.

So exciting for them! What a neat story! And so fun that Shea's home! My brother was sad that he missed seeing him by just a few hours! He's such a cute guy! I'm glad to hear that it goes by fast!
