A bit more about Jacob

I couldn't think of a better Sunday Snapshot than our birthday boy himself. It's been quite the week for our little guy!

Ni Hao Y'all

I'd say Jacob's pretty jazzed at the news of having a family....but that's just a guess. ;)

A little bit about our sweet boy.
He is 7 months older than Joey and they moved into the family home from the orphanage within months of each other about 3 years ago.
This child has our hearts.....big time.
I can't get enough of how his personality shines through each of his photographs.
Jacob's "special need" is cleft lip & palate. Both of which have been repaired along with a heart condition that is common among cleft affected children. Medically he should be good to go but we see an immense amount of orthodontic work in his future...also quite common with cleft issues.....but we just don't see any of that when we look at him...
we see love!
We see our son!
We see a boy hand crafted by the Maker and placed right into our lives and directly into our hearts.

He is our ever unfolding miracle...
and for that we are ever grateful.
