Our New Son

I’m so happy to introduce you to our new son, Winston Swanson.

It was less than a month ago when our adoption agency contacted us about a birth family who was interested in meeting us. I won’t go into the details here, but over the past few weeks we’ve shared a lot with these two impressive people. We are beyond honored that they chose to place this beautiful boy with us.

It’s been a strange month, in part because we’ve not been free to share this process with many people we care about. The nature of adoption is so tenuous that we felt it best to share our great news only after things had become official. Today is that day!

We’re all a bit bleary-eyed and emotionally spent around here. But we’re happy, so very happy.

I look forward to introducing him to you in person one day soon.

Keep them coming. god has blessed me too. At 81 , I am well and active. Just got back from a wonderful trip to Alaska. Now I’m drinking coffee on my patio, looking at my beautiful lake,listening to loons. swam and biked this a.m. all of this is an undeserved gift. I thank Him. Love, Lois

    Winston is beautiful. Of course I am not the least bit bias. I can’t wait to see what God will do next in your family!
