The biggest and most important hurdle of the adoption process that we have left to clear was cleared today. Miles was born happy and healthy. He weighed in at 8 lbs. 19.5 inches long, and has all the right numbers of things he is supposed to have and no reasons for concern. He is a handsome guy too. More info to come as details unfold.
12/12/08 Out of respect for our new situation and for Miles and his life I am taking down his pictures.
