IT'S OFFICIAL!!

We were officially declared the parents of Wesley today! Court took a long time to start, but only lasted about 25 minutes. The judge is considering waiving the 10 day waiting period, but we'll find out for sure tomorrow. Please continue to pray that it is waived!!

-------

So here are the pictures everyone has been waiting on...

here's the serious look I was talking about


playing inside the orphanage


a family of three (I took this picture today. I would have shown a picture without something in his mouth, but that seriously limits my options! And since today is symbolic...)




isn't this the sweetest picture??


he LOVES riding on our shoulders!

I will post more pictures tomorrow! It's been a long day, and I need my sleep!!
Love - Staci and Damon

Staci,

Are you at Kharkiv Baby Orphange #2? We adopted our daughter Lauren there in January of 05 and I think that may be where you are. We also used Cathy Harris and Ukrainian Angels. Lauren was 15 months when we adopted her.

Your son is adorable. So blonde!!

Please feel free to email me.
