Meeting My New Guy
I didn't want to creep him out by obviously taking pictures of him or hugging on him so I controlled my urges to shower him with praise and affection. But I did sneak in compliments and pats on the back when I could. It's an odd feeling to know that the child you are interacting with is about to live in your home, but you can't take him right then. It was also hard to not tell him about our plan to add him to our family because I didn't want to get his hopes up if something fell through. He's precious and I'm waiting very impatiently for him to get here. In the picture he is the one on the right. His brother (who is nearly 16) is sitting on the left. I will only be able to post pictures of the back of his head since he is still in foster care, but trust me when I say that his jolly little face lit up my world that night.
