When You Wish Upon A Star

Dreams really do come true!!

We attended a baby shower Friday night.  The nice part about this shower is the fact that the baby was there!  (I think all showers should be adjusted so you get to meet the baby, but what do I know!)

These friends of ours having been trying to have a baby for a long time.  They've gone through all sorts of medical stuff and no luck.

They had to get to the point where they decided to adopt, and no luck.

They decided to go through DSS, and still no luck.

They didn't care if they had a boy, girl, young, old, black, white, yellow, red, whatever.  They had love they wanted to share. 

A couple weeks ago, the planets and stars aligned, and now they have a newborn little girl.  That is the really short version of the story.  REALLY short. But suffice it to say that it is a miracle. 

We were all there to celebrate the new baby with them.  

Some were more excited than others.

Sometimes, and not nearly often enough, the nice guy does finish first.

Congrats Chris, Stacey, and Baby Elloree!
