Mom and Dad Meet Little Man

Today I met Baykt and our translator for the first time and we took the big ride to the orphanage. We met the director and then a nanny came out holding the sweetest and most handsome little man who just so happened to be our son. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to hold him for the first time. He never cried the whole time. We got to hold him for a full hour and then I got to rock him to sleep. Tom put his little mobile up in his crib and may I say he is most fascinated with that thing already. His daddy made him smile several times. I think he is laughing at his bald head:) Baykt asked me later on what I thought and all I could say is that God has sent me another miracle. I thought that with Lindze and now I know it with Little Man. He just held my hand every time I held him. He seems to be doing well developmentally and he is not as big as he seemed in our most recent pictures. I cannot wait to go back tomorrow and see and hold him again. I also must say that Tom was a little nervous holding him but he did pretty good. We are taking plenty of pictures and I will show them to family when I get home.
I have heard that my little Lindze is having a great time at her Nana and PawPaw's so that makes me feel better but I miss her dearly and cannot wait to get a big old kiss from my girl. I will deal with leaving Little Man closer to that day but I know it is going to be hard. I just hope I don't get all emotional like I did when Lindze said goodbye.

Matt came through!! My Prayers have been answered and you arrived safely, I will continue to pray for your trip and return home. Enjoy every minute with your little man and give him a kiss from aunt Heather.I cant wait to see the pics. Your little LuLu is doing great and we are keeping her busy. No tears from her, only me when I read your blog. I gave her
