A Surprise

And yes, it's another kiddo.  


Just for the record, he's not ours to keep.  But WOW, do we love this guy.  

Child o' my heart--- first one I ever got to meet in person, I prayed and prayed for this (now) young man to be CHOSEN.  

And he was!  A great, loving family he got, only they live in.... Washington STATE.  Yep, and we are in..... Pennsylvania. 

So far away:(

BUT----- today, this young man arrived after saving his money for months to pay for his own plane ticket to visit our teens, his former orphanage buddies. 

They haven't seen each other since they were all adopted, 3, 4 and 5 years now.

AND it was SOOOO much fun to keep this visit a surprise, showing up with him at the kids' youth group for a surprise reunion and party for these precious teens.

I'm pretty sure Chance hasn't stopped smiling yet, they certainly aren't sleeping yet, I can hear them chatting away as if he will be gone tomorrow.

 Nope, we have the pleasure of his company for the next week. Yep, a whole week to catch up, enjoy,and  reminisce. 

We've already heard many stories of things they did, mostly Chance and Titus, they were best friends and it's amazing the things they remember and are sharing with us.

And for those who will wonder, yes, he's a blondie like Phoebe. And Phoebe didn't know what to think of him. She's not met someone like herself, Chinese, but blond, but Chinese!  It was quite funny to see her reaction.

Haven't these kiddos all GROWN?  (Sorry, no picture of Chase, Chance, Chloe and Titus all together from China)

Welcome, Titus, it's gonna be a fantastic week, I am sure. (They are STILL laughing,and oh, what a JOYFUL sound-- even if it's now wayyyyyy past bedtime:)

Thank you so much for allowing Titus to come and have his wish fulfilled of seeing his friends!
