…we got a VERY important phone call. The caller let us know that the packet we’d been waiting for was in, and if we wanted to come pick it up we could. Wanted to? We’d been waiting for MONTHS for this information…we’d be on our way immediately. Inside, we found these:
Referral pictures (and paperwork) for a baby born just 8 1/2 months before. He looked so worried with his furrowed little brow! We couldn’t wait to go get him.
We left about 7 weeks later, and brought home Ryan Joseph. It’s been quite an adventure! He’s a joy and a delight. And now we only see that furrowed brow when he’s joking with us. No more worried baby!
