Jesus said “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” - Mark 9:37

I have been so excited all day...

We got the orphanage call update we have been waiting 19 days for... Thank you Angela & Kelly from Ladybugs 'N Love From Above!!! http://ladybugsnlove.com/
AND our adoption agency is LOCKING in our son right now & submitting to China for PA (Pre-Approval) for us to adopt him!!!  OMGoodness! The flood of emotions...
They have 48 hrs to translate & get all our docs to China. Then we wait 5-7 business days for PA. So we need lots of prayers!
Meanwhile, we need the first agency payment of $3,000 when PA comes back.
Who wants 2012 calendars???
And for those interested: He is in a foster home, which is why the update took so long. He is a very happy outgoing boy, loved by everyone. He even goes to school. He's good at math, but needs extra help with words... sounds like a Patton to me. (lol) He loves music and to sing, again must be a Patton. His favorite colors are red, green and yellow. He turns 10 yrs old next month and we can't wait to get more pics of him!
