Congratulations!! I was adopted myself and everyday am thankful for that gift. I have very tender feelings for my parents, and for that wonderful woman who was able to put my needs above her own and place me in a home where I would be able to get all the things she couldn't offer. Adoption is an amazing way to create a family.

Yay Mike and EM! You must be as amazing as I think you are for TAMN to put something about someone besides herself and her amazing little ones on this blog! We are so excited for you guys. Seriously, that little guy is so lucky to have such amazing, loving parents! :o)
LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
Oh and TAMN... you are seriously the bestest EBFF EVER! Def. worth a Mia Maid lesson! ;o)

Carolyn said...

OKay--this is too weird because these all sound like "normal" blog comments--no satire or anything. :) Seriously though, adoption is WONDERFUL--we have adopted four children and it is a great community to be a part of--my advice to these new adoptive parents is to meet other adoptive couples and get together--it's great to share stories and sorrows together. and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

Kathryn said...

How wonderful...they're a beautiful family!

Michelle said...

This made my week to hear of this news. Emily-- you are going to be a wonderful mother! Congratulations!

ramsam said...

Your makeovers just open the door for all sorts of miracles. You should definitely DO MORE!

Micaela said...

congratulations you two!! i love the miracle that is adoption!! really love it. somewhere out there is an amazingly wonderful birthmother that just gave her son and this couple something they all couldn't give themselves. she is so beautiful. congrats again!

dunnthat said...

A makeover AND a baby??! Awesome. Uber congratulations to you both Mike and Emily! And might I add, a special prayer of thanks to the selfless birth parents for giving this baby a better life with two amazing people. I doubt anyone could love this boy more than you two. I'm thrilled for you!
