New Pictures of Benjamin

(Edit: 6/29/07: I was off on my estimate of how soon Benjamin will be able to come home. I thought that all of the stuff that has to be done after the adoption is finalized would take 6 weeks, but I just read on the AOH yahoo group that it is more like 2 - 3 months after the adoption is finalized before the child is ready to travel. No wonder you were surprised by my time-line, Rae. Boo-hoo....I like my time-line better. Looks like I at least have a due date now of around October or November.)
I am on cloud-nine! I just got an email update on Benjamin and THREE NEW PICTURES!!! Here's my beautiful son:

Are those dimples?????

Hey, Grandpa. Do you see my T-Shirt? It must be a sign! I'm going to be your fishing buddy. : )

This is my favorite picture. Oh, my heart hurts with how much I want to hug my little boy. I can't wait!

Donna at AOH said that she would estimate our adoption being finalized in August. Then there would be approx. 6 more weeks after that before he would be ready to come home. It's just a guess, but feels so good to know where we are at.
I am so grateful for pictures!!!!! Please keep praying for Benjamin and for the whole process.

I know exactly how you are feeling! He is truly a very cute little boy. I'm excited to hear that the process should be going rather quickly for you. Kim

Rae said...

Wow! I'm surprised at that timeline! That's good news! It's right around the corner :)

He's way too cute, Becky, and I can't wait to see him playing with Ava, Leora, and Siah and Sam (and your girls of course!)
