Re-Reading Our Orphan Report

I have been reading and re-reading our orphan report a lot lately. It makes me feel close to JJ. He sounds like such a special little boy. I'm really grateful that God is the one who chose him for us. I believed from the very beginning that God would hand-select the little boy that was meant to be our son.

After we lost the referral for Benjamin, I had a hard time letting go. I didn't want to allow myself to attach to JJ until I knew he was here. It is getting more and more difficult to remain unattached. This little one has my heart and I can't wait to get him home.

Click here if you'd like to read my original posting of the orphan report. I think you'll agree that we have been blessed with a special, happy little boy.

I can't wait to see JJ in your arms and watch him playing with our kids! What a joy that will be!

I did the same thing with Henry's orphan report... I read and re-read it over and over... it made me feel so close to him.

I was impressed by how accurate it was! They sure nailed his personality -- it's exactly what I would have written now that I know him in person.

JJ sounds like such a sweetheart! He is definitely a cutie! :) I can't wait until you get to write about him personally.

Love,
Amber

Becky - Thanks for the comment on Marcus's finalization. We now have a date for his visa at the end of February. I have not talked with Rachel about this, but if it would work we would love to escort your JJ home. Both my husband and I will be traveling. Feel free to email me solt@verizon.net.
