I did it. I bought the baby his (we will most likely be matched with a boy), first outfit this weekend during a family girls shopping trip to the states. My sweet sister in law had pulled out a cute pair of pajamas that she wanted to buy for me. That got me looking through the shelves myself. I literally couldn't hold back the tears as I thought about the "little man" who would be wearing the overalls and shirt that I picked out for him one day. I still can't believe that it's my turn. I am beyond blessed!

I have also loved having my nephew and neices talk about the adoption with us. I love it that they're not afraid to ask: My 8 year old nephew asked at the dinner table "So, anything new on the adoption? Is it going to be a boy or a girl because we need some boys around here." I (surprisingly, I know), tear up every time I hear them pray for the baby from Russia. I have a feeling that you'll be able to mop the floors with my tears the first time I watch them all play together.

God is very good!

It is so sweet that the kids talk and ask about it.

I want to see the outfit! You should take a picture and update the post with it. I mean...if you want to...I'm not telling you what to do. :)

It must have been SO exciting to shop for your "little man".

How exciting. I was thinking about you yesterday and wanted to ask if you had any new news.

It is so sweet that the kids are so interested. I bet they cannot wait to meet their new cousin.
