Announcing Our Pregnancy

Last month at our daughter's adoption finalization celebration, we had the opportunity to tell many of our family and dear friends about our pregnancy.

After the court hearing, we stood outside for a group photo.

And with the help of our favorite photographer [Tess Irene Photography], we caught their reaction on camera.

Tess started by asking everyone to say, "It's Official!"

Then she said, "Everyone say, 'Kendra and Olivia are going to be big sisters!'"

(Cue the confusion...although Angela on the right seems to have caught on quickly!)

Finally, Chris and I yelled, "We're pregnant!"

And that's when the screams and tears and hugs out of pure disbelief started.

It was great -- and to be honest, it was also somewhat surreal -- to be able to share our news with so many people we love and care about.

And when I look at my two daughters, my heart sometimes feels like it could burst just imagining them with another little brother or sister to love.

We are so blessed.
