A little bit of Daniel news!!
was at the orphanage today holding Daniel outside on the porch and he
was smiling like crazy! He even giggled!!!!!!!! It was adorable an
precious. When you talk to him and gently touch his upper lip and
giggle with him he actually giggles! I think his head has stopped
growing not positive but I actually think it has. It is so hot here
but he is in great shape and his skin is solft and silky. The nannies
do such a great job with him."
NO, it wasn't the good news that our most necessary document was finally signed, but WHAT A WONDERFUL REPORT ABOUT DANIEL HIMSELF!! How I praise God for this wonderful report and truly answered prayers for our sweet baby!! Every day we ask God to sustain Daniel, to do a healing work that will minimize or eliminate his need for surgery, a protecting work to keep his health optimal even with medical care as limited as it is. Reading Patty's words, I just cried. Oh how I long to hear those giggles and stroke his precious face myself............... I can't WAIT to touch his cheeks, kiss his sweet baby feet, do the things that cause him to smile and laugh out loud with joy!.How I hope and pray that after being loved on by his nannies for so long that he will transition easily to being loved by us without a lot of trauma. I've long seen that toddlers have a really tough time being adopted.They understand "Something" has happened which has made everything different, but don't have the comprehension to understand adoption and don't have the vocabulary to ask or verbalize their emotions. For Daniel who has so many other issues, Ive been praying that God be preparing him on every level for coming home and being our Daniel. I don't want those giggles to stop because he's scared out of his wits. The holidays apparently squashed hopes of any productive meetings last week; the word is again,,,,,,,,,,,,,,"Hope for Tuesday" PLEASE LORD JESUS, may THIS be T H E Tuesday on which we see true forward movement: the signature to move our adotpion to a completed signed on-the-dotted-ines adoption decreed adoption, ready for Visa investigation and issuance! Thank You so very very much for Your loving hand upon Daniel!
