some friends of ours became parents for the first time on saturday. katherine lindsay was born on saturday, november 6 at 1:30. 6lbs11oz 20inches- and incredibly adorable! grant and i went to see them in the hospital on sunday. she was so precious i just wanted to cuddle her all day. grant didn't even want to put her down. what is it about the sight of a grown man holding a tiny newborn that is so beautiful? he was so good with her. he is going to be a great father one day.
we actually had a HUGE discussion about kids this weekend. sometimes i feel like i am so ready. i look on adoption websites all the time checking out the policies and looking at the kids ready for adoption. most organizations require that both adopting parents be at least 25 and if you want to adopt from china (which i do) you both must be between 30 and 52 and your ages added cannot go over 104. i know that we will know when God calls us to follow that path, i just wish my maternal instincts weren't shouting so loud.
