Don’t you just love that smile?
This morning we received pre-approval from the CCCWA to adopt this little charmer.
He’s nearly 9 months old, clearly adorable, and is waiting for us in Henan, a province in central China.
We’ve chosen to name him Josiah.
From his file we have learned that he loves when his caretakers move his arms and legs to make him dance. And that when he sees his milk bottle he is very excited and dances for joy. If his height and weight measurements are correct, he’s quite a chubby little guy. (Look at that thigh!) I’ve been affectionately calling him my “chunky monkey.”
Now we wait for our Letter of Acceptance (3-4 months) and then Travel Approval (10-14 weeks). So that means we’ll welcome him home sometime in January . . . or February . . . or March.
We’re so thankful to have the blessing of calling this sweet boy our son. And Rose and Grace couldn’t be more excited to meet their baby brother!
