This evening we've video conferenced with my mother to let her know we plan to adopt. She was more than excited. She travels around the United States for business and so we could have either waited until we would see her at Christmas, or we could tell her now before we tell everyone else. We chose to tell her now.
We will be visiting with Bob's family on the weekend for the annual McKerrell Christmas get-together. We will be telling his family on Saturday.
