It's a Boy!

My sister, Julie, and her husband, Dustin, are in Taiwan as I write this, picking up their little boy. They're adopting a sweet 11-month-old, Alex Kuan Yu Loveridge. Jules sent some pictures today and I just keep misting up every time I look at them.

This is Julie's first baby. Dustin has two girls who are thrilled to be having another baby brother. My heart is so full that I hardly know what to say. When I saw the pictures of the proud parents with their new, bewildered little one I just felt this overwhelming sense of love. That lucky child is going to be the beneficiary of a large, loving family who will smother him with love and kisses and lots of really cool birthday and Christmas presents.

He has lived this much of his life in a wonderfully loving, caring orphanage and will now be with two parents who love him so much and have waited for him for so long.

Welcome to the family, sweet boy.

Thanks Heather. I absolutely love it. It's one I'll frame and put on my wall. :-)

They're coming home on a midnight flight, 3 days earlier than planned! Nothing like parental baptism by fire. Here, have a baby, and now fly across the ocean for 11 hours with it...:-D
