I'm pregnant! Yep... took a test last night and this morning, both are pretty darn positive. I still am having a hard time wrapping my head around all of this. We called Shantel almost immediately to share the news with her, we just wanted her to know as soon as possible so that she could change her mind if she felt she needed to. She didn't! She's over the moon excited for us and is already calling Ella a big sister!!!

Unfortunately, we probably won't tell the agency until after placement. I know one of their rules are that they won't do a placement within one year of a birth of another child. Well this child hasn't been born yet, and I frankly don't know what they would decide, but Shantel agreed that we just won't say anything just in case. She absolutely doesn't want them to take us away from our baby! And neither do we!!

Anwway... my crazy news for the day! I'll keep you posted on how things go at the clinic!

Oh, and please don't mention this on Facebook, not ready to share the news with the world quite yet.

What FABULOUS news!!! I'm so happy for you guys! I have so many friends who tried and tried and tried to get pregnant and nothing every happened (for years and years) and they "gave up" with all the medical interventions and started the adoption process and boom they were pregnant. What a blessing to you guys! I'm wishing you a very happy and healthy nine months!
