Our Beautiful Boy!

Be still my heart! We have visited with Sammy twice. He is delightful and we are so blessed. They had told him we were coming yesterday, so when we walked around the corner he was anxiously looking for us and called out "mama!" when he saw me. Yep, won my heart immediately!

I'm going to keep it short so we can skype the kiddos at home, but here are a couple pics from our first day:

We're here!

I know I have been a bad blogger! We don't have Internet in our apartment, so this will be quick! We got Sam's referral today, and we will see him tomorrow! I can't wait! Pray we get Internet so I can post pictures!

We have a date!

We also finally have internet back(I would have shared sooner, but we switched providers after unreliable service). We are so excited. We will be in Sam's country by the end of this month! There is so much to do. Why is it months of wait, wait, wait, and all of a sudden you are sprinting to the finish line? Please pray for all the final details as well as some specific political situations in Sam's country that have direct influence on the adoption process.

In the meantime, life continues as normal and I have catch up with some pics of birthday boys and baseball players! Maybe tomorrow.

The iPad Winner is....

Congratulations, DeAngelis Family!

Thank you to everyone who contributed and helped spread the word about the giveaway! I wish I had a prize for all of you. Really, I prayed for each of you as I wrote your names on the raffle tickets. I hope that you will feel blessed to have participated in bringing our precious son home!

The winner of the Visa gift card does not wish to be named. This stubborn-I mean gracious person would like me to keep the gift card to do another giveaway and raise more funds. Still deciding what to do, but I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, we are still WAITING to hear word of a travel date. We are hopeful it will be by the end of this week.

Oh, and special thanks to my goofball Blair who drew the raffle ticket winners and then had to do silly poses while I tried to take the picture!

Sock Monkey says...


To donate, click here.

You're right, sock monkey didn't really say that. What he did say was "Please come home soon, Sam! I want to play with you!". Look how lonely Sock Monkey looks:( He and Mommy really want Sam HOME....still waiting (not so patiently) for news of our travel date. Keep praying, and keep spreading the word about the giveaway. We can't tell you how much we appreciate everyone who has donated and spread the word!
