More things I know
I'm alive! Technical diffuclties in posting. Hope to have a full post up soon, withpictures of my beautiful youngest son. I set expectations low--didn't want to be disappointed if I didn't "feel it" when we first met. But the sight of him, and the feel of his skin, and the kisses he gave us--I felt it. I felt it big time. His development and personality match the picture of the child we had in our minds. He will fit in with our big kids SO WELL. Headed back to ESWS tomorrow because YH's foster father wants to meet us on his day off. He and YH have a very strong bond--YH calls him on the phone everyday and when Appa gets home from work YH helps him with his evening routine. YH loves to follow big dogs around (PHEW). He is very busy and very curious, always asking "What's this? What's this?" He is tech-savvy and can operate a phone/tablet touch screen easily. He is sweet and loving, giving kisses and backrubs. He laughs a lot and is playful. I didn't cry until the end, when I hugged Mrs. S. Our outfits matched--two mothers with tender hearts dressed in the blues and blacks of a bruise. Oh, I ache thinking about what is to come.
