“It’s happening”, was all I could think to say when I saw the obvious subject line of an email on my phone. Cassie didn’t understand what I said at first so I repeated, “It’s happening NOW”. I [being the nerdy father already] quickly set up the tripod and camera. This was the moment we had been waiting for. Our case worker sent us pictures and a medical report and we were supposed to say “yes” or “no” to proceed with the adoption.
The video below is our reaction to seeing pictures of a sweet little 10 month old boy named Bruk!
We fell in love right away and are by all means going to pursue adoption of this little guy. The next step is to wait for the agency to set up a court date in Ethiopia. We don’t know how long that will take but we hope to see him at least by this Fall. As for pictures, we aren’t allowed to post any online just yet, but we can sure find a way to get some to you if your anxious to see him!
We are so thrilled. He is the most beautiful kid we have ever seen!
