Second Day with Joseph

Our boy seemed happy to see us this morning. He doesn't make a lot of eye contact, but was quicker, today, to look for us. He reaches for Marty, often. Marty is so amazing with him. It's a beautiful thing to see. He played with us for about an hour, before he scooted over to his ball pit to sit in the sun. The sun comes in through a window and hits the ball pit. He likes to sit in the sunshine and I bet he loves to be outside. If it warms up some we're going to take him out this afternoon and see how he does.

He gets anxious as it gets close to lunch and nap time. This is when he rocks and shakes his head and hands. We saw a lot less of that this morning than we did yesterday. I think, yesterday, was incredibly overwhelming for him and I hate that we have to leave him and start the process all over again in a few months. He relaxed more while we held him today and snuggled in some. He prefers to face outward, but will lean back for a few seconds at a time. Here's what you all want to see...

  He really loves his Daddy...
Daddy's are so much fun!
Love this smile!
He's like a limp rag when you try to stand him up. Just not happening...
I sure do love him, though!

We'll go back for a visit this evening and will have him in a private room. I'm hoping to get his measurements, so we'll know what size clothing we're buying. I'm guessing an 18 month. His shoes are a size 6, but he could do a size 5 still. Sweet little man. 

Pray, Adopt, Advocate, Support...

Hidden in Christ,


  1. He is so precious and I love him to pieces!

  2. he is awesome! Bet he will have weight on those legs in no time after he come home.

  3. Oh it's all just so exciting! Thank you again for allowing us to follow your journey. Praying for you!
