Dear Sweet Boy

Dear sweet boy, today we had to say goodbye to you. It is the hardest thing we have ever had to do. The love we have for you has grown so much since we first saw your face almost eight months ago.

Be strong sweet boy. You are going to be reunited with your birth mother. We are so grateful you will have a family even if it isn't the one we longed to provide for you. We are planting a weeping cherry tree for you. It will bloom every year at this time. We will never forget the day we had to say goodbye to you. You will always be in our hearts and our prayers. We love you dear sweet boy...

Still here

We are still here! It's been a month since my last post, but I haven't really had much to talk about. We are still waiting for movement with the police in our baby's province. We are also still waiting for documents requested by USCIS to be prepared and sent. Our agency director has been in Vietnam for a few weeks, but there has not been much news.

The main thing that has changed for us is the difficulty of waiting. It is becoming much harder to deal with the wait and uncertainty. The tears are flowing much more freely. We are still clinging to hope that the issues will be resolved, and we can travel to bring our sweet baby boy home. He turns 14 months old tomorrow.

The highlight of the week was that we received a new picture. He's sad and fussy in the picture. I want so badly to scoop him up and rock him until he's no longer sad.
Thank you all for your encouraging comments, emails, and especially for your prayers.
