SO handsome!!

At 4:00 pm yesterday afternoon (Thursday in Seoul) we had our 2nd visit with our sweet boy. His foster mother said he wasn't feeling very well and we could tell that he was pretty congested, but he was in good spirits.

The 3 of us spent an hour playing and getting to know each other more. Daddy read a book....

Mommy smooched some adorable little cheeks...

J 2nd Meeting 2

Josiah YeJoon LOVES to eat and had a bottle while we were with him. He kept grabbing for his Daddy's fingers. This melted my heart.

And so did this....

2nd Meeting 8

Josiah was SO calm and never cried. He was very reserved at first, but then we saw some smiles and I was the one who got the big giggles from him today.

J 2nd meeting 1

The foster mom and the social worker were SO pleased with how well Josiah YeJoon did with us. They said they were nervous because most of the time he doesn't let people hold him and he certainly doesn't like to be out of sight of his foster parents. We are very thankful that he feels comfortable and relaxed with us....another sign of God's hand in this!!

Josiah is "all ours" on Monday morning - right before we leave for the airport. Please continue to pray for us and especially for him and his foster family. It will be heartbreaking for them to say good-bye.

J 2nd Meeting 6

Everyone says over and over and over and over how handsome our precious son is. We couldn't agree more!! He is perfect and sweet and we love him with everything in us. We have to pinch ourselves 'cause sometimes we simply can't believe we are here in Korea and are finally with our Josiah. How blessed we are!!

Sending lots of love from Seoul.....

  25. He is simply perfecct. I'm so glad you have a great second visit. Isn't it great when they don't cry when the foster mother & social worker leave the room? I also know what you mean...seeing my DH with our son melts my heart too. That shot of your husband reading to him and playing...ahhh, it doesn't get much better than that!

    Enjoy your weekend in Seoul. So much to do, so much to see. I'll be thinking of and praying for you on Monday...that parting time is soooo emotional, but so important. I'll pray for smooth, safe travels for you bringing your adorable little boy home...forever...finally!

    I was staring at my previously beautiful baby boy today on the playground and at 6, I was thinking, wow. My son is going to be beating the girls off with a stick -

    I'll save the stick to loan to you, you are gonna need it!!
