How does one do it well, or right, when it comes to announcing an event that may or may not come to pass, but whose impact will change many lives, one way or another? Mmmm...I don't know, so here's my best shot:
We are expecting...
...expecting to be blessed by God in immeasurable ways in the days/weeks/months to come.
...expecting to welcome into our world a tiny baby boy whose life will be joined with ours within the month and whose story we'll share for a lifetime.
...expecting to open our hearts to a dear young couple who have decided to place the life they created into the arms of our family in a few short weeks.
...expecting that having a son in our home will have an amazing impact on our lives.
...expecting God to hold us all in the palm of His hands until the adoption is complete, and if something happens to disrupt it, expecting Him to help us all put the pieces back together.
I guess that's it; we're expecting, and it's a boy!
