Our little man

Well, we are home and (sort of) rested. Brandon had a rough night but is now sleeping (and has been since 8:30am). It was really hard for us to see him so scared and sad. To know that there was nothing that we could do to take away his pain, all we could do was just be with him. This morning when we got up he was playing peek-a-boo and smiling so that made me happy.

What I know so far...

**He HATES getting his diaper changed (I cannot stress enough how much he hates it)

**He will pretty much eat anything we give him. So far he's had rice, a french fry from Chick-fil-a, cereal, cheerios and sweet potato puffs (Gerber).

**He will not let us put him down when he is sleeping. I held him from 8:30 to 12:30 and Patrick relieved me and still has him.

**His foster mother and family LOVED him a lot; tons of pictures and an awesome diary that she kept for him. It's in Korean so we will have to get it translated some day!

**He is just the most amazing baby I have ever seen in my entire life. I still can't believe I get to be his momma, I am the luckiest woman in the world!

Here is a video from last night:

Take that journal to the folks at the Korean Presbyterian Church in Lincoln. They do a Korean cultural festival for families built through adoption, and I'm SURE someone will help you translate it. The clerk of session around when I was still there was a neat lady, but I have no idea if she's still the clerk. Someone can help you though!

I was on the TIES trip and on the same flight home to Chicago with your son. He is just the cutest, sweetest little boy. He stole the hearts of all the families on the flight from Korea.

He was very, very attached to his yellow blanket.

I have a picture of him, with Jenna, waiting at the airport in Korea. Is it possible to send me a private message and then I can send you the picture?
