The ticker at the top tell us that today marks two months since we last saw the Little Guy. Honestly it feels like an entire year has passed since we last saw him.
We did receive a special surprise today. Wanna guess what it is?....
We received eight new photos of him! It really is a bit bittersweet. We are so grateful for the pictures and being able to see his little face. But here are some downsides... he is getting bigger (that is a good thing) and we aren't there to watch him get bigger (that is bad thing); he has that 'look' in his eyes (those that have been in orphanages know the look I am referring to); his new haircut is horrible; and his little red shoes look to be too tight on his feet. I am trying to not be negative and want to be upbeat, but those are the things this momma notices when she looks at her little one that is sitting across the world with out his parents.
Just take a look at this picture. Tell me this isn't a little one in need of some lovin' (and a wardrobe change!). I actually think it is kinda sweet that they got him dressed up for his pictures for us. This is a very typical outfit for the baby homes. You can see that they tried to color coordinate and tuck his shirt in like a little gentleman. Wow - if you could see the haircut as well you would really be in for a surprise.
I know that we have some amazing prayer warriors that read this blog (I could feel the strength your prayers gave me to get through last week). We are specifically praying that the judge that sees our dossier that will be submitted next week has a soft heart and understands the importance of getting Baby B----- home to his forever family very soon. Please join us in that prayer!
