It's a BOY!

On October 6th, we got a call saying we had been matched with this sweet, sweet little boy.

 This is the picture we received, along with his medical records and a report from his orphanage.  After much prayer, we KNEW this sweet boy was meant to be ours! 

We had to submit a letter of intent to China along with photos of us and our family in order to "lock him in" as ours.  It was a long wait (a whole WEEK!), but we received word today that this little guy is OURS!!!!

He will be 1 year old at the end of this month.  Here is an updated picture they sent us just a few days ago: 

Josh is jealous of his haircut. 

Words cannot describe the emotions running through us right now.  We are so very happy and excited to get to see the little face that God intended to be ours from the very start. 

We cannot WAIT to hug and hold this little guy, and tell him he is loved. 

I just want to throw my hands up in the air and run around crazy while shouting:  "Yay, yay, yay, yay, yay!!!!!  Praise God!"

Oh wait.  I've done that already!
