Introducing ...
Benjamin Lucas

25 weeks along; 1 lb. 7 oz.

We got to see our son via ultrasound today. It's so neat to see his little fingers and toes and watch his heart beat. Of course, we loved hearing that he (and the birth mom) are healthy and doing well.

Yes, as the title indicates, we've decided on Benjamin Lucas. Lucas is after my grandpa, John Lucas (aka Poppy). We'll likely call him Ben much of the time. And I do have to admit that boy names are much more difficult to come up with than girl names, but I'm really happy with our choice.

I love how God is into details. We first saw Cate at the 25-week mark of her birth mom's pregnancy. Now, same goes for Ben. The process to bring Cate into our home was more of a blessing than we ever imagined it would be, and it's so exciting to witness God doing it again, in some of the same ways, and in plenty of different ways. In the end, God's faithfulness remains and our hearts are able to overflow with joy.
