A haPpy Thanksgiving indeed!

I'm so excited for it finally being official. I'll be praying for an embassy date (and a court date for big brother) to come as quickly as possible.

How you kept from posting such adorable photos all these months I'll never know. It must have been torture. I'm so glad we get to see your adorable son now.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
