We were able to get some pictures and a short video of our Son this week! We are still unable to share anything on the web, but just know we think our Son is amazing! We can't wait for him and Carson to be together at home playing the day away! All of this waiting is hard. I keep myself busy by learning as much as I can about the adoption process, reading about attachment and bonding, and fundraising.
Bringing a toddler home around the same age as Carson seems a little crazy, but we're so excited for them to be close in age. We talk with Carson constantly about his brother and he wants him home now! He talks about playing cars, trains and playing soccer with him. I know Carson is going to be an awesome big brother and I can't wait to share memories about what the two of them do together with all of our family and friends!
It was so great to get pictures, but it still makes me sad to see him and not be able to hold him and tell him everything will be okay. I know that attaching isn't easy but I can't wait to have the opportunity to show him our love and that we will be there for him for the rest of his life.
We have a few more months before we will travel, but that's okay because we still need to continue fundraising and saving money for our trip. We are currently selling puzzle pieces (see the picture below for a sneak peak of how it's coming along. I don't have all the names on there yet, but there are plenty of spaces left) and we are preparing for another garage sale at the end of August.
Please contact us personally if you have any questions about our adoption or our current fundraisers. We are currently accepting donations for our next garage sale, let us know if you would like us to come by and pick up your stuff!
**We were also able to make another change to our thermometer. Take a look at the left side of our blog!
