I have not joined a message board in a long time! I was in an expecting club with my first son, who is now 7.5, and I still chat with that group often. But for some reason haven't done it for any of the others! I'm 8-9 weeks...due sometime in August. I'll get an ultrasound next week for a more accurate date. We have 4 boys, 7.5, 5, 3 and 2.5(this one is adopted if you were doing that math). I actually found out on adoption day in December!This one is a bit of a surprise, but I'm getting excited. Still trying to get my husband used to the idea;-)

You have your hands full!  DH and I thought about adoption before we got preg this time.  My nephew and his wife are forster parents, and there are so many kids 2 years plus that need homes.  But, we ended up preggo, and this will be our last.

And welcome!!  I'm Misty, I'll be 10 weeks Sunday.  I am married to Chris, and we have two DD's.  Hannah is 8 and Madison is 4 1/2.  I'm a stay at home mom.

Congrats and welcome!  That's pretty exciting that you found out on adoption day as well!  I'm sure this baby will have so many little helpers and built-in playmates!  Wink

Cheers!

We have been foster parents for almost 2 years. So we adopted Joe out of the system. We are going to take a little break from taking in kids though. You can only have 3 kids under 6, and looks like we'll have that for quite a while;) We've taken in some older kids, and will again some time. But not with so many littles right now. I also stay home.

Wow, that is amazing!! Foster care is hard, but older kids can be really hard. That's a lot of kids! We've had up to 6 a few times...but with them all being so little that's about all we could handle! We'll be taking a little break during the pregnancy/newborn stage. Congrats!

Kelly! Sorry I didn't notice your post before this. That's crazy. Though I had a feeling when you said you had a 7,5-yr old.. Knew it had to be close. We had Ian on 6/23. I don't remember you by name. I haven't posted on that boad in a LONG LONG LONG time. But I did meet some of the other Utah moms (where we lived at the time) in real life after all our babies were born and I'm still in touch with Sara (Max's mom).
