August Update

We received our August update today and Daniel has gained 2 more pounds putting him at a total of 12 pounds and 23 inches long. We also found out the following about him:

*He is lifing his chest and head up while on his tummy
*He reaches to grasp toys and objects
*He is easy going and playful
*He loves to laugh at the other babies while watching them

He is happy and healthy and growing! We can't wait to get him. Praise God for his health and the growth he is making, even if we aren't there to see it. God has big plans for this little boy and I can't wait to see what he is going to do with them.

Happy and Healthy

New pictures came today of Daniel from the Taylor's. They took awesome pictures and in everyone Daniel is smiling and in some laughing. I just love it. His little face is filling out and his cheeks are getting so chubby and round. I can't wait to see that sweet face other than in pictures. I can't stop staring at these pictures today, definitely not a productive day!!!!!!! Praise God that he is so happy and healthy!

Hold on baby, mommy and daddy are coming real soon.....

3rd Care Package

44 more days until our court date. I can't believe August is almost over even though I am honestly wishing the months away until we get to see that sweet face. We should be getting more pictures this week from The Taylors who travelled to pick up their sweet baby girl, she is a cutie. We should also receive our August update the end of this week or next week. I am so excited to see how much weight he has gained. I can't wait to post pictures for all of you to see. You will fall in love the minute you look at him. Of course I could be biased.

The pictures below are pictures of our 3rd care package that will be travelling with The Pellizzari's next week. I love knowing our little man is receiving so much love from the families travelling to pick up their kids and I can't wait to return the favor! Enjoy the pics:

2nd Care Package

We received more pictures today from The Gagnon's who just travelled to pick up their little girl. I love opening my email to the subject line "A** Pics" and opening the links to see that sweet face. He is getting so big and looks very healthy. I praise God for that everyday. We have sent a 2nd care package with a few outfits and a few rattles and toys that Daniel will be to big for by the time he comes home, with the Taylors. They are in Ethiopia right now and will see Daniel tomorrow.

This was an outfit we found at Wal*Mart. Across the front it says "Heaven Sent" which is appropriate since Daniel is completely a gift from God!!!!!

Court Date

We received a call from Anna today, our court date is October 10th. Yes that means we are caught up in court closures. They did everything they could to try and get us in before the closures but the courts would not budge. We are happy to know a court date that we can actually focus on even if it is 2 months away. I tried to prepare myself for getting caught in closures, still doesn't make it easy.
