After a 2 day delay, we had court on Wednesday and a cute little orphan became a cute little member of our family! Meet Paul Sergiy Stout:
He also chose that day to start smiling. It could be that somehow he just knew he had a family or it could be the bananas I snuck him during our visit. But he was a different boy-he had more energy, was smiling, and playing in his own little way. He really will thrive once he is home for good.
And after such a great visit, we then had to leave. We will be stateside for about 10 days and then I will go back to take care of some final paperwork and get Paul out of his orphanage. With any luck, we’ll all be back home by mid-November.
Thank you all for following along and for the prayers!
