We're Special.

To mention here that life has been a little crazy for the two of us lately would be the understatement of the year.

Kris and I have had a little taste of what feels like science fiction in the last few months - And have survived it all BEACUSE first of all we've leaned heavily on God, our Rock, and secondly because we have been blessed in life with THE most incredible family and friends any two people could ever dream of being surrounded by.

Many of you already know that the two of us have wanted to add human babies :) to our family for over 3 years now... and it wasn't until this last fall that we found out it wasn't 'just going to happen' for us like it had for so many of our friends.

So after a lot of prayer and advice from the cool people we surround ourselves with, we took the plunge and decided to try our only real option for a Kris+Leanne miracle: InVitro Fertilization. Google it. Crazy stuff.



So here is a picture of what I like to call our little "embies" (embryos)... I think this picture was taken after about 24 hours of existence. CRAZY!
We found out earlier this week that at least one of these little miracles decided to stick around! (positive preg. test)
Later this month we find out if both of them stuck around (twins?)... or just one. Either way - Kris and I are beyond excited and a little shell shocked.

Blessed,
-Us
