Introducing....

Our son, Jackson Levi. I honestly can't believe I am writing this post. There were days when I wondered if this day would ever come. But, it is here. The relinquishment papers were signed today, the birthparents are of course sad, but tell us they are happy for us, and Jason is at home with his son right now. I of course am halfway across the country, but I will be holding my son in 26 hours or so...not that I'm counting:). I can breathe again! And, what you all have been waiting for....

Love at First Sight...





Jackson Levi E
Born 8-17-10 at 8:57pm
7lbs 3.4oz
19 3/4 in.

I started this blog with a wish to someday post a picture of us holding our child. I cannot yet post one of me holding him, and for that my heart aches. I cried all afternoon. BUT, his daddy is holding him, feeding him, changing him, snuggling him and learning all about how to be Jackson's daddy. Honestly, I can't ask for more in this moment. All is right with the world. I will of course post again very soon with pictures of ME holding my son:).

I want to thank ALL of you for your thoughts, prayers, warm wishes, etc. They have meant so much to me. Now, we start a new journey....

For those of you still waiting, don't forget to Nurture Your Hopes...they truly are the seeds of good things to come.
