We met our boys!!!

We met our two beautiful boys this morning, and it was wonderful!

We arrived at the care center around 9:30 this morning, and we went right upstairs to meet our baby. They put him in my arms, and I couldn't stop the tears of joy! He is such laid-back, content baby, and he rewards you with smile after smile! Our 22 month old was not so happy. He was crying before he came in the room to meet us, and he never stopped until he finally fell asleep in my arms from exhaustion. Then I started crying because I was so relieved that he stopped crying, and also because my heart was rejoicing that he was right there in my arms.

I love the both so much! My heart is so full, and I'm so thankful to God for these beautiful children. Court is on Wednesday, and we'll visit them again on Thursday and Friday. Tomorrow, we're going to take a drive outside of the city to see a bit of the countryside and to tour a rock-hewn church. So far, we've been really enjoying out time here. Thank you all for your love and support and prayers. We're feeling them, and we love you! Please pray especially that all goes well on Wednesday for our court date!!! HUGS!
