Uber Cute! Like Really Cute! Too Cute For Words!

Those are the words our friends have used to describe our baby boy!!!

Lisa and Jason and Jenn and Dave are in Ethiopia picking up their sweet kids and they got to see Ade!!!

Jenn's email yesterday morning had me crying tears of joy! I actually scared Yvan when I yelped very loudly when I saw the email from Jenn in my inbox with the title "Your Son is Amazing!"

Oh, my heart is busting! I can't wait to get over there and see him FOR MYSELF!!

They said he entertained them with his smiles and giggles and he is a healthy weight and saw no signs of him being sick anymore. He didn't play shy at all :)

That's our boy! Outgoing like his momma and entertaining like his poppa!!

Oh I get all teary-eyed just writing this post!!

I am so happy our agency allows families who are picking up their kids to see other families kids who are in the foster home!

Lisa would have given Ade his care package - which means so much! He won't know he is looking at his future parents in the photo album we sent but some how just knowing he has it - well.....it makes me feel that much more connected to him.

Thank you to Jenn and Lisa for taking time to see our boy and to email us with a much anticipated update!!

Much love,

Rana
-I am a giant pile of love again this weekend

Aw. That's so good to get first hand confirmation too that he is looking healthy again!

Danielle said...

Oh I totally remember how amazing it would feel when families used to travel and be able to tell me all about Zia!! Awesome, and glad Ade is back to himself and feeling better!

Kendra said...

That's great that he is doing so well! I am sure it takes a load off your mind to hear that information from people you know that have seen him in person.

Dianne said...

They "saw no signs of him being sick anymore". Oh what a gift to hear that!!

And hello... of course he's just too cute for words. But it just never gets old hearing it, does it? :)

Not at all surprised that he is uber cute from what I've seen so far!!!! Enjoy the joy and happiness in hearing these bits about Ade. Come on video! Oh and I can't wait to hear you describe him when you first hold him!

How wonderful, Rana. I hope you get to go SOON and squeeze him, and of course, bring him home!

Tova said...

I'm such a softy these days...your post has made me teary too. Sigh....can't wait to see those pictures of you holding him. You know those pictures where you look jetlagged, overwhelmed, but more happy and fulfilled than any other picture. :)

Glad to hear you are a giant pile of love again!!! He is soooo cute Rana. In all honesty, the cutest little guy I have ever seen.(besides my own) I have even heard people on the street saying that! LOL.
Enjoy the glow.

Littleone said...

I am so happy to hear Ade is doing better and I am glad he was more willing to visit than Abdeta who apparently screamed when they tried to come near him! LOL! Looks like I will have another stubborn one on my hands! ;-)
