Ok, PICTURES!

For some reason I'm just not able to upload directly to blogger. I can upload to photobucket, one picture at a time though, which is better than nothing!

When I first arrived, Axel was eating his lunch. He seemed to remember me from last spring. He wasn't sure what I was doing with my camera, so this is the first face I got. LOL

When I showed him the picture and he realized this was a CAMERA, well, then lets get to posing, huh?

Do you see the toy phone in his hand? You all know that Angela has her imaginary people, well This is Axel's version! This phone goes with him everywhere, and when there is something he wants to really think about, he does so talking to his phone.

At our meeting with the Ministry officials, they told me he likes cars. I was so glad I'd packed a couple of matchbox cars in my Axel bag. Of course, he wanted me to take a picture of his favorite.

And finally, a short video. He loved this tiny magnadoodle, so I'm sure he'll love the big one I have waiting for him at the hotel. ;-)

When I met Axel in April he was not talking. Just a few sounds here and there. Well, his social worker said that just a few weeks ago, about the same time we made the formal request for him, he started jabbering like crazy! He still only has a few recognizable words, but there is constant babble coming from him, so more words won't be far behind.

And if I met you once, maybe...just maybe....we will met again and I can actually meet Axel. A girl can dream right? He looks amazing..I can only imagine how Angela is going to react to a little brother!! Praying for a smooth process for dear Axel.

  3. Leah, He's BEAUTIFUL! And...itty bitty. I'm gonna go get him some more clothes today. That little boy has no clue how blessed his life just became. Give him all the love he'll allow and know that you have an army of people back here praying for you and loving you and riding this emotional roller coaster with you.
