Our Birthday Boy....

Today, in China, it is now July 21st....our sweet, precious baby boy's birthday. He has just turned 4 years old. Oh how I had hoped we'd be there for his birthday but God's plans are greater so we celebrate here and anxiously await travel approval.

We love you so much son and we can't wait to scoop you up and love on you! It will be soon...sooo very soon!!!

I was in tears as I worked on this collage...what a gift to have so many pictures of our peanut. Tears of sadness that we've missed out on so much...tears of joy that THIS is OUR BOY...tears of sheer excitement that we will be united soon! Ohhh, How we miss this sweet one!!!!
Enjoy the faces of our boy!!!

I feel your pain.

I didn't realize our boys are so close in age.

We will be missing our son's 4th birthday on Thursday.

Awww.....what a sweet post! Such a precious boy and the photo collage collapses it! God will more than help make up for the time you did not have with Solomon, by blessing double-fold the REST OF YOUR LIFE WITH HIM!!!!! Praying you through this waiting, my friend!

How lucky you are to have SO many pictures!

I only had 3 and I longed for more!

Soon he will be home with you and then the waiting will finally be over and you can enjoy your family being all together :)

He's adorable.

How wonderful to have so many precious pictures! Just think, you will from here on be adding this date to your family's birthday traditions! (We will miss our son's 3rd b'day in September.)

I am so excited that you guys are so close!
