TRYING to Adopt: Nick and Michelle

This post is a little different from the others.
Let me tell you a little about

Nick and Michelle have been married for 7 wonderful years.
After 5 years of several unsuccessful attempts to have biological children,
they decided that Adoption was the route they were to take to start a family.

In May of 2008, two months after another miscarriage,
Michelle learned of her friends cousins friends sister (mouthful right?)
who was 18, pregnant with her second child, and was looking for a family to place her child with.

July 30th,
Their beautiful daughter Kayla was born and placed into their arms.

Kayla is now 16 months old:

ADORABLE right? oh my goodness

Nick, who is in the air force,
 just recently returned home from Afghanistan on October 10th.


About three months ago,
Michelle began feeling strongly that she needed more kids.

a couple of week ago she discovered that Kaylas birthmom is pregnant again.
and then just a few days ago, she announced to Nick and Michelle, that she wanted to place this baby boy with them as well.

You can imagine their excitement right?
The baby is due February 7th.

There is just one problem.
They are short with finances this time.

They had the money saved up for Kayla,
but this time they don't.

They feel strongly that this is their child.
He would biologically be Kayla's half brother.

She is currently holding an "Adoption Fundraiser"

I've just found your blog and have been reading some posts. I am so glad I did. We are very protective of our birth mother, and birth mothers in general, and by writing this blog you are showing everyone that birth moms are not some wounded animals hiding from view but strong women determined to see their children having the best they can. Very uplifting.

Also, Michelle is someone who supported us in our journey to adopt, and I can't think of anyone that deserves another child more. Kayla has a wonderful family, and I hope she can have her little brother home with her soon.
