One year ago....

we received our referral. The call was a shock as with the reaccreditation problems, we weren't expecting anything for months. After the call, we figured things would move quickly. I never imagined it would take 10 more months to bring him home. But, I'll go with the cliche that I swore to never use....IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT.


The picture on the left is his referral picture, taken on Oct 1, 2006. The second was taken on October 9, 2007 - home exactly 2 months.

Oh Rob...how amazing. You know what I find funny? At first glance he and Collin could be twins! I thought for a second that it was Collin when he was younger...how funny. I will be coming that direction this weekend, so if you can fit me in, give me a call on my cel. Love you guys! Melissa

He has grown so much in the year. And it looks like he's grown a lot in the two months he's been home. He's a very handsome guy.
