We were delighted to receive an update today on our little guy. We're clinging to every glimpse of him we can get. I admit, today's update has made us a little more concerned about the transition. We've yet to hear that he is flexible or a people lover, so we're preparing our hearts for the cold shoulder, but praying otherwise. Here is some of what we heard from the in-country staff:
"Nahom is joining the growing list of kids that don't really like me. I am a big scary white man, not something he sees everyday. I also caught him just as he was waking from his nap, so let's just say he didn't run into my arms. He is doing well. He continues to be a good eater and likes to play. He continues to practice his walking skills, and is much more comfortable holding hands than taking steps alone. He is developing nicely. I hope you had a great Christmas, and I will see you soon."
Did you hear that? He'll see us soon- very soon, almost single digits soon! Hooray!
