Now that you have scrolled down to see the pics, you can read my update. :)
We were so terribly nervous about today. When we got here yesterday, we were given a little more medical info about Little Man and it was so scary. I will share some more at some point, probably after he is officially ours.
He is a sweetheart! He was a little standoffish when we first got there. He was curious about all the grownups around. There was me, Honey, our facilitator, 2 social workers and the 2 drivers. He LOVES to be the center of attention, so he was a happy little guy to go around shaking hands. He warmed up to us relatively quickly. The driver for the social workers picked him and put him in Honey's lap. He squirmed at first but then settled down for a few minutes. He got down and went into the next room while the adults talked. A few minutes later, he came back in and raised his arms for Honey to pick him up and kissed Honey on the cheek. :) Don't worry, I got my share of love too! We gave him a stuffed animal that he carried all over. Until, that is, I brought out my camera. I got a few pics of him (they aren't super clear because this child doesn't stay still for long) and then he took the camera. He LOVES pushing buttons and had a blast with my camera for over an hour carrying it all over the house. I got a ton of pictures of his hands, fingers and shoes. One adorable thing he does is back up to my legs and sort of lean into me. He lets me snuggle him although I have tried to not overwhelm him. My thoughts are so muddled right now. Maybe I will post more details later once I can sort our my thoughts. But I wanted to thank everyone who prayed for us! We could feel them and the Lord made the day wonderful!
This is the first picture of me with my Little Man! He was squirming trying to get the camera so it's not great, but I LOVE it!
The foster mom has him sleep in a crib....he is 6. Although he is small, I'm not sure how he is comfortable.
Isn't his smile something?! He just melts my heart. They just buzzed his hair off recently because he has a skin infection on his scalp. I can't wait to get that cleared up so he can have his beautiful hair again. And he is such a cutie in glasses....no, I am not biased. :)
