Abraham Christopher came screaming into the world on Wednesday, June 20th at 11:35 a.m.
He weighed in at 6 lbs. 11 oz. - not too bad for a 38 week baby!
I'm in scrubs because he was born by c-section and K asked me to be the one to go into surgery with her.
Once he checked out and was shown to have great Apgars (9 and 9), we got to go out into the hallway to meet daddy for the first time.
He did not like being poked and prodded in the nursery.
But all was made better when he got to nurse for the first time.
On Thursday, June 21st his birthmom, K, signed away her rights. She was incredibly strong. She told me she cried out all her tears the night before and loved the decision she made for him. She always referred to us as his mom and dad and told me she now understood why he was born.
And just like that, we had a son.
It won't all be finalized until December, but he's not going anywhere!
We are madly in love with him.
Ridiculously exhausted, but head over heals for this little man!
His sisters call him A-bee-ham.
We call him ours.
