It's a...

BOY !!!!!

Renee was right! June is an awesome month!

Finally! After a very, very, very long wait (exactly 31 and a half months), we are very proud to announce that we have a son!! Nicolas!

He is currently living in Cebu, Philippines with his foster family...weighing in at 11 kilos and 76cm and he can leap tall buildings (we're sure!). He was born on July 2, 2009 (so he's almost 2!)

We can't wait to meet him!

Thank you everyone for your kind words and your support...you will never know how much it meant to me to have the support of friends (in person and online).

I'll blog more about the actual proposal soon...for now though we're thrilled and we have some paperwork to take care of....here's to speedy travels!

Tammy and Eric
