I woke up this AM to an absolutely fantastic surprise!! A traveling family was able to visit Shepherd’s orphanage and not only see him and hug him, but they got some pictures for us!! I am just beside myself because there have been several families who have traveled to adopt their kiddos from his CWI recently, but who had decided not to go to the orphanage. So when Wendy agreed to take our little guy a small gift, I tried not to get my hopes us as I know families have to take into consideration their child’s needs when deciding to visit or not visit their child’s orphanage.
All that to say, “Holy Cow!! I AM SO EXCITED!!” Is he not the cutest? His little feet remind me so much of Jude’s before we had his feet corrected… I just want to love that little man UP!! Okay, I’ll admit, I’m biased, but he is STILL the cutest 🙂 Wendy’s new son Steven is pretty darn adorable, too! Thank you, Wendy, I am SO grateful!!
What a wonderful pick me up for you! One of my friends is supposed to be bringing Maggie a care package on Monday and then we will see her in 2 weeks…wahooo!

It is so great that families can network like this to help each other out. What a gift to get more pictures of your beautiful little guy!
