Photos of Daniel Elijah!!!

I had been told by Daniel's agency not to share photos of him earlier, BUT I asked again, since he is our (referred) son, and we are waiting for that blessed court decree which will make him legally our son, and was told that it was fine for me to share photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is our hope and prayer that he will be coming home before summer is over, for so many reasons, but that is up to God at this point as we trust Him and continue to pray for Daniel, and for Junior and Diamoh as well.
With a mamma's heart full of love, may I introduce an unmasked Daniel Elijah!





I zoomed in on a photo to share what Daniel REALLY looks like. Look at his sweet face ,those eyes which supposedly don't see very much. He was in his bed placed side-by-side with another very special needs little guy and I was told they really liked being close together. His face certainly seems to show that he is content, happy about being so close to Levi.
How I ache to hold him in my arms again and to bring him home!!



These are the "scary" Daniel photos, using Naomi's word It is how he often looks to human eyes, it is a fact of how his hydrocephaly manifests.............it is what I saw too, at first, until God quickly shifted my gears from human eye vision to Godly vision and I saw a sweet baby who needed a Mamma and a Pappa and brothers and sisters, and to be held and talked to , prayed with and for, sung to, invited and included,

In his new bed, which he received shortly after we met him in March

Ok Linda - you know I'm not a big crier - wow! I just love him too!

Every time we speak of him and share how it feels to be a Momma waiting for her son to come home - I get those holy goosebumps. Just like I did this morning looking at him through HIS eyes!

Oh precious friend I rejoice with you knowing Daniel is in the perfect hands until he comes home forever! Prayed over him as I looked at his sweet face! I love the picture of him staring at Levi!

Trusting with you!

I love you and can't wait to hear ,"Jill we leave tomorrow to bring home our son!"

Big hugs - blessings on your day!
Jill
