Baby Shower

So many of you may not know this, but we're having a baby!!! Yup, but unlike most of you parents -to be, we aren't going about it the most popular way. :) We are being blessed by the miracle of adoption!(I'll expand more on a later post).

This week three amazing girls from my ward threw us a shower. We played a really fun game, at lots of junkfood, and I was giddy with delight that I am here, in this place in my life, where we could celebrate our baby to be. Thanks to everyone who helped make it such a blast!

We handed out this poem, with chocolate hearts as a party favor:

"Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart-but in it."
Love it.
