Something I felt I needed to share.

This is my Bother Brett and his cute little Family.

I was on my Cousins blog the other day and she has some friends that just adopted a baby.
They were only on the list for 2 weeks when they got the call that they were picked.
(This is a Terrific thing for them)
However I have a little brother and sister (All my sister In-laws are my Sisters so that's what I call them)
Brett and Nikki they tried for like 4 years to get pregnant with many miscarriage's and disappointments along the way.
They finally had my very Handsome, very cute nephew Ethan. We call him the miracle baby.
Anyway he is almost 5 and they have been trying again for about the last 4 years for a baby. They are also going through LDS Services to adopt. They have been going to classes and everything that they need to to get a precious baby.
This is a little background for the story I really wanted to share.......

Ethan has been dying for a brother or a sister ever since he could talk.
He has dolls that are not dolls but they are in fact his brothers or sisters, he doesn't care what gender he just wants a sibling.
I have never seen a child want something so bad, and it's something that is so hard to give.
When I found out I was having twins I was so happy, but a part of me was so sad.
Here I was about to have 2 babies (No fertility involved, just happened) and my little brother was trying so hard to have one.
I knew he would be happy for me, but I also knew that it would be bitter sweet for him.

My mom told me a story that nikki told her about Ethan and this is what I wanted to share.

Nikki & Ethan were shopping in Walmart one day when Ethan saw a lady with a baby in her cart.
He begged Nikki to go and ask her if she wanted her baby or if they could have it.
Nikki told dhim that she was sure that the mom wanted her baby but Ethan really wanted her to go ask her.
This breaks my heart, Brett & Nikki are both wonderful parents and Ethan is the most well behaved child I know.
They all want this so bad.
I was babysitting Ethan one day a couple months ago and he was playing with the boys, he looked at me with a little confusion in his eyes and asked my why I have 2 babies. (Kinda like why do you get 2 and I don't even get 1) It makes me really sad.
I know that they will get picked and that baby will be the luckiest baby in the whole world, it will never lack for love or anything else. I Just felt for some reason like I should share this with everyone.

It is sometimes unfair how some people have tons of kids and others struggle. Interesting story. A few years ago a friend of mine and I were talking and we discovered that we were both on anti-depressants. She was on them because of her in ability to have children and I was on them because I had 5 kids in 6 years. Ironic.

That is a great story. I know they will get a baby when the time is right and that baby will be loved so much! What a great family! I like your background. Did you find the cutestblogontheblock website? If not on my page there is a link to Rachel and Mike, click on it and on their page they have a link to cutest blogs and it takes you to the site. About 1/4 of the way down the page on the right side it says "Do this first" and that is where the directions are. Let me know!

This just breaks my heart for them. I will keep them in my prayers. I know that when the time is right they will get a baby, I just wish (and they do too) that time was right now. What a cute little guy.
