He HAD to have his pants pushed up like Daddy Feeding Daddy goldfish

Loving the backpack

Watching everyone around him

Running to Daddy and laughing his head off

Not so happy at first

Our very first sight.

We traveled to the civil affairs office to receive our boy. I will post pictures for now and give more narration later. We have to be downstairs in 20" to do more paperwork. He loves Daddy best, but seems to tolerate mom as well.
He cried inititally but soon began to love us and gave many smiles and laughter. We almost couldn't get him from our guides or the nannies. He was very obviously loved at the orphanage. We praise God for that.

Now for the pictures.

HE IS SO PRECIOUS! He's just like Claire... a daddy's boy! I hope that you will have fun with us little bro! I can't wait to hold you!


Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
