Early this morning I left Louisville where I was reading AP US history essays to be with my family.  My husband's only sibling lost her only son last night in an accident.  He and G were very close, more than just uncle and nephew.

Then this evening I got the call!  We had asked for a 3-5 year old of either gender and our referral is for a four year old boy, born April 28, 2004 and currently living in Beijing.  I'm not sure I got the spelling of his name right due to nerves, so after I get the preliminary referral tomorrow with pics, I'll update again.

I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your families.

Your son is beautiful. He looks like he could get into some good mischief. His personality really shows in the photo.
