The Big Day...

Barring a gallon of sedatives, there was not one way I was sleeping last night. To say there was excitement about today is an understatement. Think bigger than Christmas when you were six years old, then multiply by 1000! God has worked so mightily in our lives to bring us to the moment today when we met our son for the first time.


We started by going the minister of education at about 8:30am. She was very gracious and the interview went well. She gave us permission to go to the orphanage to meet Nathan. We got to spend about a half hour with him. What a sweet little guy! We are completely in love with him. He was very tired and ready for a nap, so our visit was kept short.


After lunch, we went back to the Minister of Education to pick up a document that we needed to sign with the orphanage director, accepting Nathan's referral. We were then able to spend another hour with him. He recognized us as soon as we walked in the room, gave us a huge smile and started crawling toward us. He is so good natured and cuddly. He loves being sung to and rocked, playing on the therapy ball, and playing with trucks and balls. He does not like getting his picture taken...so tomorrow we are going to have to be more sly, LOL!


In the morning, we will go to another government office to complete the last step of the official referral process. Then we get to spend more time with Nathan, whoohoo!


And now, what you've really been waiting for...check out this sweet pic of Dad and his boy having some fun:0)
