We have a new baby at our house!!!!!!

Our newest family member Braylon Jacob

Braylon first day home from the hospital
Two Days old
Braylon first camping trip to Red Fish Lake 7 days old we had so much fun!!!!!!!

We can longer keep him a secret, not that we were tring too, but the story is very personal to Mike and I. We have needed some time to recover from the shock and emotional roller coster we have boarded. It has been 5 weeks since we brought our new little baby home and it is time to tell his story.

Our home has been blessed with a new healthy baby boy. His name is Braylon Jacob (in about 4 weeks his last will be Brown!) he was born July 18, 2008. He weighed 6lbs 10oz, 19 inches long. He is perfect in every way ! We are now in the process of adopting him. Yes, I said ADOPTING!!!!! We can not believe it either. There is no denying he belongs to us. He has been in our home since he was two days old.

Braylon's birth parent are two very special people. They looked above their own needs and wants did what was best for there baby. They gave Braylon to a family who would care and love him endlessly. We will always hold them special in our heart for such a gift. When they asked if Mike and I would care for him we did not think twice. In fact when we saw him for the first time I knew he was meant for our family. The spirit spoke so loud to my heart I could not deny what the Lord was asking of me. When Mike took him in his arms for the first time, in the hospital, tears filled his eyes. I had seen this look before on Mike's face when he met his two other sons for the first time. The spirit consumed Mike and I, we knew what our future was with this little boy.

Kenyon and Dylan have taken to him very well. We have had no problems transitioning through this new phase. We explained very carefully to them that they were no being replaced. Mom and Dad had so much love to share with all of our boys. They have only loved and accepted Braylon from the minute we brought him home. What a joy to have three beautiful little boys in our home.
Thank you for the meals, gifts, and love we have received. We truly have been blessed.
