Cute - don't you think?

He is so cute, I can hardly stand it! Don't you feel that way about your kids sometimes? There are moments that I just want to kiss their cheeks off, squeeze them till they pop, and tickle them till there is no tomorrow!!! Well, I haven't even met Jacob yet and these photos make me feel that way about my son.

One of my yahoo group friends is in China now spending a few days at PHF where her daughter spent the first few months of her life. She and her family were able to interact with Jacob! How cool is it that God blesses us over and over with tidbits of information about our son?! In the midst of waiting for our LOA, dealing with the flu, and saying goodbye to our best friends, God sends these beautiful rays of sunshine! Praise HIm!
Here are some pictures of your boy. He is very friendly and loves to get his picture taken and to see it. During a movie yesterday all of the kids were sitting to watch so I sat down kind of on the side to take pictures and he decided he wasn't having anything to do with the movie and sat in my lap to look on my screen and announce to the nannies who I was taking the pictures of. Very precious. A happy little boy who loves affection and has a great laugh. First day he wasn't so sure about me taking pictures and didn't offer many smiles but can't capture how great his laughing was on the second day!"

Getting Closer!

Well, we are on Day 67 of our wait since our dossier has been logged into China. I have started to gather items for our trip (medicines, toiletries, a backpack and some small toys for Jacob, etc...), get the boy's room ready to "share" space, and do some reading on "Toddler Adoption" issues. The last month has gone by more quickly than the first. We continue to be blessed with photos of Jacob from various sources. I have often seen him with one particular caregiver that he seems especially close to. It is reassuring to know that he is getting good care!

Lantern Festival Outing

Jacob got to go on an outing to a Lantern festival. I just love the photo of him with his mouth wide open in astonishment at something he sees. It looks like he enjoys eating McD's too!
