A Big Brother for Bobby!

We have been busy, busy and I have not blogged like I should, but I will try to do better! I'll start it off an announcement. Bobby is getting a big brother! His name is David and he and Bobby grew up in the same orphanage. We went to a picnic this summer attended by some of Bobby friends from his orphanage who were being hosted for a few weeks here in the states in the summer. We spent some time with David and he and Bobby seemed to remember each other and played on the playground with a couple of other friends from the orphanage. David is such a sweet, tenderhearted child. I remembered meeting him when we visited Bobby's orphanage in March of 2013. I fell in love with him after spending just a little bit of time with him in July. He is a perfect fit for our family. He is almost exactly 3 years older than Bobby.

David loved the small slide, but did not want to go on the big one! Just the right amount of daredevil for this family!
David's host family sent this shot of him on a boat having fun!
Here is David greeting Bobby when we visited the orphanage in March 2013.
David seemed to like the friendship bracelets Bobby gave out when he was saying goodbye to all of his friends. Guess I will be ordering some more of them, so David can hand them out when he says his goodbyes!

I hope to keep up this blog so that those who would like can follow our journey to add David to our family. This sweet boy will complete our family and I look forward to having another wonderful son :) I currently have PA from his country and our home study is in process and many of the documents for the dossier are already in hand. We are moving right along!


  1. Congratulations, Beth! So happy for you! May God bless you as you go through the steps to add David to your family! This is wonderful news!!!

  2. Wow! Wonderful and exciting news. We will keep your family in our prayers!
