I'm sure you've all heard the news by now. Yesterday, Alicia and I got an email saying we were selected to adopt two children! We're both so excited, and we didn't think it could get any better.
However, as it turns out, the good news didn't stop there...
Since we've started the adoption process, all we've heard is "If you adopt, you'll get pregnant. I knew these people, they adopted twins, they got pregnant with triplets." It seems like every person we've ever told that we're adopting has come back at us with that same story. I was beginning to think everyone knew that same couple. So last night, as a joke, I told my wife to get a pregnancy test to prove everyone wrong. She laughed and talked about posting pictures of it along with making fun of everyone who told us that. We had a good laugh, and I definitely didn't think she'd do it. But she did.
That certainly didn't turn out as planned.
I don't think I'll ever forget the look on my wife's face as she brought the test back into the living room and showed me. Shock, disbelief, and the kind of happiness you just can't measure.
Anyway, they say a picture is worth a thousand words. So without further ado, I give you...
I love you guys.

Good News, Good News, and More GOOD NEWS!
I'm a husband, father, son, brother, and friend. I teach English and Literature to the youth of today. I love Jesus and my mother, and I'll gladly introduce you to both. I love photography and writing. Duke basketball keeps me occupied for half the year, and hating Chapel Hill keeps me busy the other half. As you can tell from the title of my blog, I like stories. I'm a big guy with a big voice, trying desperately to be heard by someone before The Lord takes me home. Let's be best friends.
