More info

Sorry the color is bad in these pics, Jax therapist was in front of the window. We also had to undo his pj's so we could put his AFO's on. Look at that buddha belly!
He's working so hard in therapy, with his cute PINK shoes!








I have an adoption blog up now. There's nothing really on there yet, and I'm waiting for some help to make a button. The address is bringmakaylamariehome.blogspot.com. This is why we changed her name... I had a lot of people say that Joy is the perfect name because thats what she'll be bringing us, which is definitely true. But Makayla has been the girls name I've wanted forever now, so it was going to be Makayla Joy. Then Ray reminded me that I've always wanted to give my girl my middle name, Marie, and Makayla Marie sounds great together, so there you have it!
You also can't donate directly to her on the Reeces Rainbow site yet. Not until Andrea recieves our first paperwork and check in the mail. I'll let you know when thats up and running.
The other great news is I called our day nurse Brandon, that we lost last month. He agreed to drop everything and come down and stay with the boys while we go get Makayla. That makes me so happy. Not only do I trust him with Jax care and life, but with the lives of my boys. Plus, they love him, and can't wait for him to come stay with them!
One big hurdle out of the way already. We've done lots of running around today, looking into passports and such. This adoption will probably go fairly quickly because our home study is already done. Thats why I'm hustling to get some fundraising stuff going. I still need idea's and things donated to the auction! If you don't remember my email its laceyrugg@hotmail.com

Oh yes, and also, you will all be "Auntie's" to a baby girl very soon!

OMGoodness...this is exciting stuff!
Whoo hoo!!

We still want to adopt...but, we had to put a stop to it all. Due to losing our health insurance. Which I found out, families must have in order to apply for adoption. Maybe some day. In the mean time...I'll be cheering you all on!

Love the name! I went on Reece's Rainbow to try and find her but I couldn't - is she on there and I am just blind? Boy they have cute kids on there - makes me so sad that they don't have homes. We just started paperwork to get our passports because we are leaving the country in June - did you know the West Jordan Post Office does passport appointments? Just an FYI.....

So cool Lacey! It's just wonderful and exciting news. It seems like things are falling into place. And what a beautiful name. I just love it! Can't wait to hear all about your journey. HUGS of JOY! ;) (haa haa, I didn't mean to make it a play on words, but after I wrote it I realized they call her Joy!)

Jax is adorable! Love the name:)

I just read your comment to me about this coming weekend. I can't take the boy out of school either Friday or Monday. :( I was thinking about bringing the girl (hehe) to Dland with me Monday. Do 3 years olds get in free, or only 2 year olds? I'm trying to decide if I can sneak her in for free. She looks older than 2 I think? Hmmm ...

If not, perhaps we can meet you somewhere else Sunday?

barrowfam said...

What a cute name! Kayla is totally going to say you are naming the baby after her. :-) Can't wait to be an Auntie! Oh and Jax is so cute in the those pictures.

Michelle said...

Jax looks like he was sure working hard in therapy!!

what exciting news to hear that Brandon will stay with the boys! I know that was one thing you were so worried about with doing an international adoption; thank goodness that is covered now!

Love the name!

Emily said...

Kristin said...

OK - so we went out of town and now I'm catching up on blogs...
I am sooo excited for you!!!! Love the name Makayla. She is going to be such a little princess. I found this amazing blog the other day and they had raise over $20,000 for their adoption. I was going to email you the link, but now I can't find it... working on it...

The VW's said...

I've looked on Reece's Rainbow a couple of times and can't find baby Joy....where is she?

Also, how can you tell which country the children are from? I can't figure out their site! But, I did find 'my girl' on there this weekend! I am in love, but unfortunately we aren't quite 'there' yet! :(

I'm SO excited for you though! Hugs!!!

I am thrilled for y'all! A little disappointed I don't get Jax :) - but how wonderful for Brandon, who knows Jax. It will be so good for the boys to have a familiar face.
Congrats - wish I was as brave as you!
