We've adopted a baby . . .

 With big joyful tears in our eyes and a sweet baby boy in our arms, we wanted to let all of you know we have adopted a bouncing baby boy.  In 5 months we will make it official in our province's supreme court but for now we are so excited to have him home!!!

We are so blessed . . . we didn't have to wait very long. In fact 2 weeks after our profile was added to our agency we received the call that we had been chosen . . .  9 Days later we were holding our son.

We are sure that there are many questions you might have . . . we will write something a little more in depth soon . . . but for now we are snuggled in with our little guy.

Thank you to everyone who offered us LOVE, support and prayers. We have felt every well wish you have sent us. Thank you so much!

We are thrilled to introduce you to our son Hudson!!!!!
"We have waited so long for this special day, to hug you, to kiss you to hold you and say.  You're wanted and loved more than you know, a lifetime of memories as we watch you grow. You're someone to cherish, someone to love, a wonderful blessing from heaven above."

  181. Oh my god Asli, I'm so happy for you guys! I'm tearing up at my desk and my head aches from trying not to cry!!!
    I had been following your blog for so long and cried when I found out you can't have a baby. I just had mine via IVF and he is wonderful.
    Enjoy your new life! I know you and Lee will be an awesome parents!

  183. Congratulations Ashli, Lee, Max and Hudson! I was adopted from birth and when I was old enough, my parents gave me a book they had made for me over the years with pictures, clips of hair, my first tooth, etc. But written in the front of the book was this poem:

    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.

    Again, Congratulations!
