Julie and I both woke up early today because today is the day! We finally get to meet our little guy in person. We showed up almost 30 minutes early and both of us said that we could throw up. After we got the room ready, the next thing we knew we were told, “He’s here!” He was shy at first, but after a little coaxing (and playing with a toy Landspeeder we brought along for him), he warmed up to us. He really liked playing Star Wars Angry Birds and settled right in and even snuggled a little bit with each of us. Julie then went and talked to his foster mom and I kept playing with him. Far too soon, it was time for him to go. Although it was bittersweet to see him go, we are thrilled that the meeting went as well as it did.

Here is a picture of that he took of me – and thanks again for your prayers and support! We could definitely feel the power of your prayers and God’s presence there today.
