Great Videos to Share!

We will update more later, but we couldn't wait to share these precious videos today!  We got to greet Ivan first thing when we arrived this morning and got it on video!!  Then we got to see him play a bit in the HUGE crib that is in a play area.  He was showing off a bit:):)  THEN, we got to see him being fed.  It was actually not very easy to watch for this momma and daddy.  It was softened though by his caregiver who, you can tell, really loves him.  She was making him smile so big and we were able to laugh at that instead of being horrified at the rate at which the food was being shoveled into his little mouth.  Oh how I just can't wait to get this boy home into our family!  Pray hard friends!!!

He is seriously adorable! Can't wait till he is home and can eat slower. I am beyond blessed just knowing I could play a small part in helping this little guy come home. What a blessing he will be to your family.

Hey, Holly Talbott sent me your blog. I am Brandon's cousin. Anyway we have a son with Down Syndrome who is 2. We want to adopt from RR someday and my heart aches daily for these children. My husband and I pray for them each night. I want to help the orphanages while we are waiting to adopt. I read about the diapers and want to know if there is someway I can send diapers to the orphanage or anything else they need for that matter.

He is the cutest thing! In the video with you, it looks like he says "mama" when you pick him up. Oh that smile just melts my heart. I cant wait til you can bring him home and he can meet his siblings. We'll continue to pray!
