The Adoption Chronicles- Volume 2!!!!

Remember 3 1/2 years ago when we adopted Addison?
Maybe we were naive back then or maybe we just had unbelievable faith because God gave us so many clear signs that it was going to happen, but we sure blabbed a lot about that adoption ahead of time, didn't we?  Everyone knew about it and was anticipating it right along with us.  Many of you were "in the waiting room" with us waiting for her arrival via Facebook and our blog.
This second round has been quite different.  You may (or may not) have known we were in the process again, but we really haven't shared much publicly about our journey.  Adoption is a beautiful, wonderful, amazing thing, but it can also be a bit of a roller coaster ride along the way.  Nothing is certain until it is officially certain.  Many times it's easier to endure the ride a little more privately.
We are thrilled to share with you that it is now officially certain that Addison has become a big sister.
Introducing Ethan Jay Gafford, born June 27 at 5:39 p.m. , weighing 8lbs 13oz, and 20.75 in. long.

We look forward to sharing more in the next few days about yet another beautiful adoption journey for the Gafford family.  God is so good to us.
