Well after 19 months.......I can say that I have a Son!! He is 7 months old and weighs 17lbs. He is amazing, cute and oh so handsome! He has the cutest lips ever...sweet little hands and I can't wait to hold him and kiss those cheeks of his.

His name is Misganaw and his new full name will be Nathaniel Misganaw Issac Reid. Nathaniel will fit right in and we are all so thrilled to be looking at his picture! I got the call around 1230 but missed it and had to wait for lunch to end (her lunch not mine.....who could eat at such a time) so I could meet my SW. At 2pm yesterday I saw my sweet little boy's face for the first time. Talk about love at first sight. SO I did get some sleep last night but I have to tell you I was up at 530 and couldn't go back to sleep. What a rollercoaster this past year has been. But I am soooo very excited to have my little boy's picture and so very glad to be to the next part of the wait.
I can't post his picture until he is legally mine so my description will have to do. :) :)
Believe me he is sweet!
