Help a cousin out!

So I thought it would be fun to share with you guys some of the stories of our announcement over the next couple of days. One of the sweetest was when we told our nieces, Amy and Ashia. We were spending the night with Brian's sister after a party and before the girls went to bed we told them we had some news. I told the girls how much their adoption has meant to Brian and I and we could not imagine our lives without them. I told them that we had decided to adopt a little boy from Africa. They about jumped off the bed! Amy then said she knew that is what we were going to say:) I then told them that he would be "painted brown" like them. Ashia threw her hand up in the air and exclaimed, "Finally! Someone in this family will look like me!!!". Too cute! We talked to them quite awhile and tried to answer all of their questions. At the end, my oldest nieces Amy said, "When he comes, we can really help him out since we've been adopted. I remember how nerve-wracking it was." Isn't that sweet! Our son is going to have the best cousins ever!
