Happy 2nd Birthday Samuel!

This little guy turns two years old today!  It is so hard to know that he is celebrating his birthday without us.  I'm looking forward to at least getting some photos of him opening his birthday gifts.  Included in his birthday gift is a photo of our family. So today he will find out that we are his forever family!  We are so blessed that his foster home does a great job of preparing the kiddos before "Gotcha Day."  Anna was scared on Gotcha Day but quickly bonded because she recognized us from our photo and the gifts we brought her were the same ones we had sent her in her care packages.  I can't wait for Samuel's Gotcha day to come and finally hold him in my arms again! Thankfully we are one step closer.  Our dossier was officially Logged In this week at the CCCWA and should be going through translation and review.  Please pray that this process goes quickly and we get our Letter of Approval within the next two months.

A few weeks ago we got this adorable video of Samuel and his friend!  This one was taken by an American expat visiting Swallows Nest. We love our loud, fun little guy! (He's the one in the red shirt)

If you want to learn more about Swallow's Nest you can read the post and see several photos of our little guy and his friends at http://rickwarner52.com/2014/04/27/special-needs-orphans-get-loving-care-at-zhengzhou-foster-home/ The blog writer nicknamed Samuel "Mohawk Man" because of his crazy new haircut and the other little boy is "Spider Man" because he climbs all over the cribs.  Here's the link to the full video http://rickwarner52.com/2014/05/01/videos-of-chinese-orphans-college-sports/

Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!  Love-Mommy
