So the past couple of weeks has been a whirlwind of emotions. On Friday April 29th we got a call from our adoption agency about a baby and after tons of waiting we finally got the call on Cinco de Mayo that she chose us to adopt her baby boy. It was the best day of our life...honestly the days leading up the that day was full of emotions and sleepless nights. Well we found out that she was due on May 18th! That didn't give us very much time. Our wonderful Sunday school class threw us an impromptu shower on Mother's Day so we could have some supplies. They are a great support system and have been with us through this whole journey. I don't know what we would have done without them. Well we trudged along going to work waiting and waiting for our son to be born. On Saturday May 14th at 4am we got the call that our son was being born and by 7:51am he was here. So we packed up the car and drove to the beach to meet our son for the first time.
The hospital staff was awesome and let us stay there so we could bond with our son. All the official stuff happen on Sunday and we brought him home on Monday. So world meet our son Tobias Bennett (Tobi). We love him so much already. Well enough talking here some more pictures of our son.
More to come.
Michael, Merrissa & Tobi
