Please be patient with me, as I plan to post pictures of my little guy very soon.
In the meantime, I would like to tell you a little about my son:
He was born January 8th, 2008 -- yep that's right, he is 4 months old! The paperwork states that he was reliquished about 8 days after his birth. For the privacy of our son, the details will be confidential for him to share when he decides.
His given name is Mesfin (meaning "Duke"). We are not sure if it was given by his mother or by the orphanage.
We are naming him Nathaniel Mesfin West.
This afternoon was full of calling family, friends and church family sharing our miracle news. I uploaded pictures for 1 hour photo to make our little "brag" book. I considered sharing them with everyone in Walmart, but decided not to. :-)
We celebrated tonight at Hog Wild BBQ with a great group of friends and family.
Despite all the excitement, my heart has been hurting very much for another family who did not have a successful court date. Andrea & I have spoken a couple times on the phone, and she has been such an encouragement to me. Please pray for the Kidd family as their case is brought to court again next week.
Lots of Love and Starbucks coffee!
