Introducing...Zachary Dale Vandewater! Can you believe it?? Part of me feels like I need to wait to tell you how EXCITED we are to share these pictures of our happy little boy. But our whole family is already talking about him and eager to ask you to pray for him with us! This is the little boy who will be two in October that I posted about before. I am filling out a massive amount of paperwork right now so we can get his adoption moving. Nothing is "official" yet (that's why I was a little hesitant) but our agency says we get to be his family! We chose the name "Zachary" because it means "the Lord remembers" and we thought that was very fitting. We decided to give him a family name for his middle name because we want him to feel that his name has a special tie to our family, just like his brothers and sisters. "Dale" was Justin's biological dad's middle name and it is also his grandpa Thomason's name.

So with great joy we want to share this precious baby's face with you so you can picture him when you lift him up to Jesus. We just received the top picture last week and we all commented on how happy he looks - we pray He is filled with the joy of the Lord! Thank you for sharing this with us. We are taking it one step at a time and we are abundantly thankful for God's plan to add another little boy to our family!


  1. So exciting! Sorry we've been so busy lately, so I've been kinda out of the loop as to what's going on with you guys. The adoption process can DEFINITELY be an emotional rollercoaster. We will be praying for your family!

  2. Jaymi, what a wonderful testimony to God's faithfulness! Pursuing a dream that He's put on your heart and carrying it out to completion. So exciting for you guys!
