INTRODUCING MALAENA SLOAN HARRIS

It has happened...we have added our latest addition to the Harris Family. Her name is Malaena Sloan Harris, and she was born September 26, 2007 at 2:30pm. She is 5lbs. 7oz and is 18 1/2 inches long. She has a head-full of black hair and chocolate brown eyes that will melt her Daddy from this point forward! She has olive color skin. We have beautiful pictures that I can't seem to get loaded onto the blog. SO...pictures will follow soon.

We are headed to St. Louis tomorrow to get Malaena's Power-of-Attorney in motion! We have so much paperwork to do in the next week. Time is crucial as there are so many new laws that could affect getting Malaena home. Please pray that this adoption will go smoothly and we will get her home without any gliches!

Thanks to all who have been praying and I am going to be greedy by asking for you to keep the prayers going UP!

I Can't believe that Brock is 17! I turn 26 today can you believe that!
I think it's great that you guys are adopting. Since Rebecca has been so sick through her 1st trimester she's considering adoption with our next kid. She's doing fine now though so she might change her mind in a couple of years.
You guys take care and if you are ever down this way stop by and chat for while.
