Here he is

What an exciting two days this has been! We arrived in Los Angeles yesterday morning and met with our lawyer. Then we found a hotel and crashed. We were pretty tired to say the least. Benjamin still has not recovered from the two hour time difference and tonight is another time change, so it may still be hard for him. But we are so thrilled to be here. I got to meet Sarah and Jack last night and they are both just precious. What a beautiful baby he is! Tonight we all went and met her and she is allowing us to keep Jack for the weekend. He is just so sweet and we are loving having him with us and getting to love on him. We would appreciate your prayers as we continue through this process. Pray that the Lord would continue to smooth the way as He has done so faithfully throughout this journey. And enjoy these precious pictures. We love you all!

Oh my goodness!!!! We keep checking and yea! We're so glad to see him! He is SOOOO cute! Oh, wow! It's amazing to see this sweet baby we've been praying for! We're praying for Benjamin, too. I know he'll need some extra TLC. We can't wait to see your little boy when you get back!

I am so sad I missed your call before you left for CA. I have been praying for you all, and am so excited I can hardly stand it! He is precious...and I hear he has a secret name. Like...secret agent baby...or something Caleb would really think was cool. Anyway, we love you and can't wait to meet him...but not hold him (!)(insert smile here!!) for a while. Love you FOUR!!!!

Oh Sharon, I have been praising our God since I found out on Friday. He is so faithful and and works everything out in His wonderful time. Know that you and your precious family are being covered in prayer. Also the birth mother has been specifically on my heart, I am praying fervently for her as well. We love you!!

God has really blessed you two. Two such precious little boys! With our kids 33 years old and 22 -I wish they'd have us some grandkids!
