    Your photos reminded me of when we met R's birthparents before they had officially selected us. We were trying to be ourselves, but also make them love us. Once they asked us to be her parents, they asked us if we wanted to meet her. Wow! I had almost forgoten this was all about a child!!

    I am so happy that yours is finally here and that you are finally a family. Congrats! Please know we are all hanging on your every word/photo!

  36. Rebekah,
    What a beautiful blessing! It is so clear that only God could have orchestrated this for you. I'm in tears after watching your slideshow. I wanted to suggest that you take these blog entries and write a book. It would be such a wonderful gift to your son as well as others on your path. I know I'm not at the adoption stage yet on my infertility journey, but may one day be. Your writing is so real, honest, and others really relate to it...at least I do! Thanks for being an encouragement and a blessing just by telling your story.

  37. I watched the slide show and was brought to tears. I could literally re-feel what I was feeling during the hospital time with our little one after his birth. Thank you for sharing these sweet moments.

    And I gotta ask, after reading about how tired you were and all it took to get there, how in the world are you looking so well-polished and beautiful in these pictures??

  38. Rebekah & Ben, I'm a terrible commenter, but I've been following your story for a while now...congratulations on the birth of your son! My husband and I were blessed to adopt our darling daughter 21 months ago, and my little one sat on my lap just now as I watched your beautiful slideshow - happily exclaiming, "Baby!" at each new picture, while my eyes filled up with tears at the joy and happiness in these photos. Congratulations and God bless ALL of you.
