We met AB and he is just the sweetest, cutest thing. He has really bonded with H and actually asked him on the second day if he could call him dad. I couldn't be more thrilled about this. The bonding will come with me...it will just take a little more time. He's never had a dad! He is so courteous and helpful and everyone only had good things to say about him. We spent lots of time with him and his foster mom (imagine Maxine from the greeting cards) and she was awesome. He is excited about being adopted and about being a big brother. He waved goodbye to the baby every time we left. Too Sweet!!! He and H swam yesterday (the water was waaay too cold for me!) and had the greatest time! Today we spent a few hours at his foster home and H and AB wrestled for at least an hour! It's just been awesome! I'll give you more details later but just know that it's been an awesome experience. We hope that his social worker will bring him to us no later than next Friday. We should know by Monday when he is coming.
I was worried that someone (mainly my old man H) was going to get hurt! It was like Friday Night Smackdown in the living room!!!
I'll post a few shower pics later but just know that it was beautiful! The diaper cake that my friend Keri made looked like it was from a magazine! I can't even imagine tearing it apart! I felt so special and honored. I shed more than a few tears!
More later...I promise!
