Derek's Visit With The Boys

Derek got to see the boys yesterday and he had a great visit with them. I don't think Ethan and Silas can quite figure out what's going on yet. They probably think that Derek is just a fun guy that showed up to play with them for awhile. They have no idea what's about to take place in their lives. Sasha on the other hand, was very happy to see Derek and I think probably also relieved!
Derek explained through our facilitator that I will be there soon and that we will be taking him to America to his new home very soon. Derek called me while he was with the boys. He put Sasha on the phone to talk to me. He said that when Sasha heard my voice, his face lit up and he said, " Mama" and pointed to the computer. Derek pulled up our family picture and Sasha pointed to my face and said "Mama." I blew him kisses through the phone and I got some in return! I just can't wait to hug these three little punkins! I'm so glad that Derek is with them now.

Shelley,

Yes, our hearts are aching to get our babies home.
Be sure to bring your very wide angle lens when you take our next family pic... ha! I can't wait to see what the next pics you take of our crew look like. I'll probably cry and cry just looking at the proofs!
Love to you guys!

Renee - I had better start asking God NOW how to photograph your expanded family in a way that is also a message about redemption and adoption! I CAN'T WAIT! :-D

Bill and I are so thrilled for you! We, and some in our church body, have been praying for you all! We're on this journey too, although not in triplicate, but with an older child.
