Life in America is Pretty Sweet

Jerret sent me a picture the other day and asked "do we even remember this kid?"
This was THE picture. The one that made us fall in love with our JJ. This was the picture that our agency sent us and we took one look and said "Can we have him?" He was only 3 months old in this picture and it would be another seven months before we would travel to meet him. He seems like such a different person now. He is so active, so cuddly, so funny, and so at home here that it's hard to imagine that he came home less than 3 months ago.
This kid was meant to be here, with us, and it's like we never skipped a beat. We knew that God had something big - even great - in store for us. I am so glad that we had the wisdom to listen and follow his plan. Many people have commented on how fast he seems to be adjusting and it's as though he's been with us forever. I hope this continues...

JJ is doing great and is so close to walking. He is at the "cruising" stage and walks holding on to furniture. He is cutting his 6th and 7th teeth and loves sharing Popsicles with dad. Below are some recent JJ says (through Jerret)..."Life in America is Pretty Sweet"

I remember that adorable first picture, too. He sure looks like he is adjusting well to the sweet life.

Wow! He sure has blossomed!
I'm making a quilt for T at the orphanage of her former kids and their new lives. I would love to add a picture of JJ!
