beautiful blessings

we are adopting again...a little boy.
He's 19 months old.
He's caucasian and hispanic
He's got light brown hair and brown eyes
He is right on track developmentally and seems to be a happy kiddo. The adoption should be finalized in about 6-9 months.

Tomorrow, we get to meet him for the first time!
We will be seeing him everyday as we transition him to our home from the foster home. So, in just a matter of 1 week, we will go from meeting him to most likely having him permanently with us.

We are super excited...but could sure use your prayers!
Please be praying for our family as we transition our new little guy.
That he will feel comfortable around us.
That we will be flexible as we adjust from a family of 3 to a family of 4.
Pray for our little lady as she might experience a variety of emotions having a little brother.

Praise God that my man already has this time off from work. He has 11 days off, which were already pre-planned time off, but God knew that!

Praise God for answers to prayers! Not just ours, but our little lady has been praying for a baby brother with white skin and brown hair like hers. God answered!

"now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us" ~Ephesians 3:20
