And Now, An Announcement Four Years In the Making

June 30, 2014

It has been over four years.

Years full of prayers and wishes.

Years of pleas. 

The years have cost us more money and medical intervention than we ever would have dreamed. But the last four years have not just taken from us, they have added much to us too. If you have ever thought about us or prayed for us, we are thankful for that. We are humbled because we know there are couples who wait twice as long as we do. There are couples who never the end to their story that they desire. And so, we are fortunate.

And Cheri and I are finally making the rounds with this announcement.

No, this isn’t going to become a dad blog…at least not automatically. But we will be sharing more details about how we got here (and what’s up with that photo in the lower right)…

…but that’s an announcement for another time.
