It's been six months . . .

since our precious boy, Anthony Jianyou, joined our family.

It seems like just yesterday we were anxiously waiting around that conference room table,

wondering what he would think of us. 

How would he react?

Would he like us?

Did he really understand what was happening?

How would we communicate?

And then he walked into the room.

Our very first photo!
Getting to know each other.
From that day forward, our love for our boy has grown in leaps and bounds. It amazing, wonderful and inspiring to watch him grow and unfold before us. He is so full of life and personality, and his English is amazing! I can't believe how well he speaks, and he is also working hard to maintain his Chinese. We are so proud of him! He is such a smart, bright, energetic boy. We are so blessed and thankful to God for choosing him for our family.

Here are a few photos I took of Anthony today to mark his six months with us.

Adoption is God's calling for our lives. If you also feel the call to adopt, prayerfully consider the waiting children, like Anthony and Grace. There are so many wanting and waiting on homes all over the world. My friend, Pat Marcus, with Superkids Charity, posted some precious children and stories on their blog today of children they met with on their most recent trip. We are going to be advocating for these precious children so stay tuned.
