Sweet Note

We got a note from the traveling mama--the one who delivered the little story book to Little Boy B.

Here's what she said:

I want to say that it is absolutely beautiful that I gave B. his wonderful album from you and he saw pictures of his family on his birthday! He is so sweet and cute and I have some great pictures for you. I showed him the book and the nannies even explained that he would be living near Abe (the traveling family's same-age son / buddy of our boy). He was so funny with it - he didn't really seem to want to listen to me - he really just wanted to have the album to himself. He was really happy and he has the most adorable smile.

Awwwww! We knew it was his birthday. We didn't have any idea that it would be celebrated with Little Boy B. at Sele Enat. It makes us imagine celebrating his five year-old birthday together next year.

Got his bedroom painted yesterday....it's starting to come together! (Now, if only U.S. Immigration would get moving, too...)

Very sweet! That was a big step to get the bedroom painted. It is all coming together. God is good! I am praying for a speedy process for your next steps.

He will always remember this birthday as the day he got his album. I hope immigration gets moving; you need this boy home!

It sounds like he is already becoming familiar with you through the pictures. We pray God is working on his heart like he is yours! You're in our prayers for you path to be smooth.
