Today we enthusiastically welcomed Will Hudson into our family. He came right to us. The assistant director of his orphanage brought him to us along with the disposable camera and picture book we had sent him. It is hard to believe that in his three years of life that is all he had to bring! Well, he marched right up to us and traded the camera and the picture book for the real thing. Will Hudson now has the love of a family that will never leave him nor forsake him.
We had such a fun day hanging out with him. We played cars, tossed the ball, went for walks (which we discovered that he loves seeing water), colored with markers and decorated with stickers. He was not interested in a nap today, so we skipped it and just played some more. We looked at pictures of his big sisters and told him that they loved him and could not wait to meet him.
We are exhausted tonight from keeping up with a busy little three year old BOY. We will gladly take being tired for the JOY that overflows from our hearts as we end this day. Will Hudson is sound asleep and we are not too far behind.
We will share more about this special day after we have had a little time to process it all. Until then, enjoy seeing picture of our new son and praise God for bringing this little boy into our lives.
