When you are awaiting to bring your child home, any email with news or pictures is like a lifeline. A connection to him. Even though it kills me every single day that he is not home with us, I appreciate the updates and pictures so much! To know he is ok. To see his smile. To see him in a new outfit. It is all so so precious to me.
The orphanage very kindly sent us pictures of his first birthday. I am so grateful and so so thankful. Not only to have these to see him, but for him to have. For his memories.
