decision made!

I've been saving this post-dream for months now. And I want to include it, but it should be dated around the 6th or 7th of August. Just pretend, ok?

Well, last night we decided to adopt from Ethiopia. We were just about to go to sleep and talking about why we were waiting and when would be a good time frame to start. Then all of a sudden, Justin said, "let's do it" and so I squealed and got all excited immediately. I asked, "really?!!" and he said, "no, I was just kidding". Then I nearly start to cry as he said he was just joking. We could start.

Silly hubband. What was he thinking? That's not funny.

So today I called our agency, All God's Children ( and told them we were ready. It was so very exciting.



Well this is it! This is our blog. I've been waiting to start blogging about our baby for ever...but then again, I've been waiting to start the process for what seems like forever, too. But I'm considering it official now since we mailed in our contracts yesterday. And I bought my first baby thing yesterday, too. It's a product (RED) onesie. I especially love the "delive(red)" one. Isn't it most fitting?

A little about us: We are Justin and Nell Ann and we live in The Woodlands area, which is north of Houston, Texas. We've been married about a year and a half at this point. We have two puppies (who aren't really puppies anymore) named Samson and Tyrone. And now we're starting the process to adopt an infant from Ethiopia, but I guess you already knew that.
Thanks for reading!
Oh, and I like blogs better with pictures, so here is one of my favorites to start off!

This is Justin, with Samson (in the back) and Tyrone the night we adopted them.

They don't look near as scary now.
