Papa and Asa

Are so cute together! When we first arrived at the creche, I told Jim that he should be the first to hold Asa since I've visited four times and Jim had never been before. When we pulled up to the creche, the two and three year olds ran up to the door. I had a feeling Asa would know Jim from all the pictures over his bed.... and he DID! He ran right into the arms of his big, bald, tearful daddy! They have really bonded well and Jim knows just how to make Asa (Asa Mack, Big Mack, etc...) laugh hysterically.


Today is our third day home and Asa is doing SO WELL! He is very talkative, happy and seems to take everything in stride (except the dog, and we're working on that). The kids are having a blast with him and they've come up with so many games to play together. Asa is learning and retaining quite a bit of English, already, and everyone loves his adorable accent. More pics, trip details and video to come....

Love that picture! Hooray for kids at home! Yeah, God! Thanks for posting this. I'll admit- I've been checking here a bit obsessively lately in hopes of finding photos. Pictures make it more "real" to those of us who are still waiting. ;)

I pray that everything continues to go very well! I am so glad to hear that his transition is going so smoothly. :-)

I am sure your family is in seventh heaven right now!

And, for what it's worth, we had major dog issues at first too!

Huge Congratulations from Tennessee!

I'm so glad that you posted that he knew who his daddy was. Those of us that are in the middle of this process still like to hear these things!

Congratulations on getting him home!
