There are many things that can change a life ... a baby is one of them.

Yesterday afternoon Kent & Em got the call they've been waiting for. After driving to Abilene this morning they came home tonight with a handsome 7lb 12oz baby boy. Meet Branch Burress McKeaigg (and you thought the branch on our McKeaigg shirts was just decoration). Mom, Dad, and baby are doing well! We couldn't be more happy for our sweet friends. Thank you for sharing in this journey with us!

Being an adoptive mom of 2, I know how amazing those phonecalls are. Our little boy is now a 6'2" 16 year old and our baby girl is a hormonal 13 year old and we love them more today than the days we received our calls. Congrats!

kelly said...

hip hip hooray for your friends!!! I cried sweet happy tears for them!

we are adopting and selling shirts to fundraise, too! 100% of the $15 purchase price helps bring our baby home.

How wonderful! I am a little choked up as I look at this photo. Hold on...this ride goes quick...I am preparing my baby boy for college...I swear it was yesterday that he was as tiny (and sweet, haha) as Branch. God bless.

The line for holding this beautiful boy starts here_______________!

The real hero, in my opinion, is the birth momma who chose life for this beautiful baby! A momma who, for whatever reason, loved this baby enough to say, "I cannot provide for you the life that you deserve!" Hurray for strength and courage!!

Congrats to your dear friends! Some dear friends of ours were blessed with a son through adoption and it has been such a blessing to them. Cheers and continued blessings to this growing family!! :)

Taylor said...

Wow. Congrats to a new family! I have enjoyed following their story on your blog! So happy Baby B has such great parents to come home to!

I hope that this little boy grows up to know how many people all over the country, celebrated this moment. He will be cherished and loved forever. And is sooo lucky to have these people as a family. :)
