Early, Early!

Hi, folks, it's Sarah. Erin just called me from her car on the way to the hospital; Tucker's birth mother is going into labor! I will update you here as I learn information.

Update #1:
Is "birth mother" insensitive? I don't know how to word this at all...

Update #2:
Well, apparently Tucker is in as big a hurry to meet his parents as they are to meet him! Holy cow, he's already here! Erin just called with details -- 6 lbs 9 oz -- but then had to get off the phone in a hurry. More when I know it.

Update #3:
Erin called back. Everything is great. Tucker has to stay at the hospital for 48 hours, so they're camped out for a while. And she said that Tucker is really cute, and then she said, "And like, actually cute, I'm not just saying that because he's mine."
I don't know that I'll get much more information, but I will post it here if I do!

YAY! Congratulations and welcome to Tucker!

He's lucky to have so many people who love him and want what's right for him. His birth mother and his Mommy are so courageous!

Everyone at our house is VERY excited about this news!

We're praying for the birth mom because fast births hurt...a lot. And, we're praying for her to remain strong as she transitions through this.

We're praying for Erin & her new family too!! We're just so very, very excited and glad Tucker is here, early & all. :)
