2nd visit

Today Todd and I got 3 hours with Kaden. We picked him up (he was so cute in his little Osh Kosh hoodie) and took him out to lunch at McDonalds so we could play in the playland. He did so good- he didn't cry when we left with him, although I did notice he was not as 'social' as he was yesterday when he was in familiar surroundings. Bless his little heart.. He seemed to really love french fries and even drank apple juice from a straw. :0) After we got tired of the McDonalds playland we headed to the park- and played on the slide. He wasn't quite sure of the slide at first, but warmed up after he knew it was safe. It was so hard to bring him back to his foster mom after the 3 hours were up (I wanted to skip the country with him but Todd said no!) so we are looking forward to having him all day tomorrow- when he finally gets to meet his big brothers and sisters (who have been trying to wait very patiently). Todd and I were sitting at the table watching him eat today and I was just taken back at how much I already love this precious little boy. There is just something about him that draws you in. We are so incredibly blessed. THANK YOU Jesus for our beautiful son!!!!

Your words bring me back to when we first met one of our sons. The Lord truly knits families together. It is heartwarming to hear your joy. Your children will be such great ambassadors for your family as Kaden meets them and gets to know you all!

May the Lord bless you greatly!
