They've Been Moved Back to the Orphanage.

....and I'll have more photos of that soon but for now I must share simply this:



Jacob.
Walking down a sterile hallway clutching his new photographs of his family, our family. 
In that picture is Justin smiling back at him.
And in 16 days we'll all be smiling at him in person.
I cannot wait.
13 days till travel.
16 days till Gotcha.

  1. WOW oh WOW girlfriend! That is just one of the coolest pics ever...to see your son looking at your pictures! PRICELESS!!! And only 15 days, too, more WOW!! I cannot wait! Oh and will you please email me what orphanage they are in. Just wondering since you are visiting some place that sounds awfully familiar and wondering where you're headed. You can comment and I won't post if you want. :)

  10. What a priceless photo. I remember receiving a similar picture of our son while we waited to bring him home. I cannot count the times I went back to look at that picture, trying to imagine what thoughts might be racing through his mind.
