As I have been closing in on graduation from nursing school, many people have asked us if we are going to start a family…as if graduation is synonymous with getting pregnant. Well, with all the kiddos in our families, we’ve decided to stick with the “rent a child” program for now. On Friday and Saturday we watched my sister and brother-in-law’s little guy – Josiah. Since Friday was the day his adoption was formalized in court, we celebrated and let him do all sorts of fun things – stay up late, ride in a chitenge (the cheaper, African version of a Baby Bjorn), get a bath, get held pretty much every second, and just hang out with Auntie Kristin and Uncle Derek (the funnest part of it all, of course!). Here are a couple pictures from our day as parents…and don’t get any bright ideas about wanting to kidnap him, because I’ve already got first dibs!
"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich."
-2 Corinthians 8:9, ESV
