a little visitor

We have our first little visitor. He's just about a year old and just as cute as a button. So far, just as easygoing as you please. He's presently perched in a nest of pillows enjoying an episode of The Wiggles.

I had an idea that it would be good to combine the morning news with The Wiggles. There could be extra bright colors and songs and dance mixed in while they let us know the weather and what's going on in the great wide world.

To preserve the confidentiality of our little visitors and for their own safety, I must be careful with sharing information. You know I wish I could tell you everything, complete with pictures of all our fun. But I know you'll understand.

Ah, yes. The Wiggles. We're currently enjoying Wow Wow Wubbzy. Good times. Love your idea about the news. Kind of like in Three Men and A Baby when he's reading her bedtime story from Sports Illustrated in his 'fairy tale voice'. Tee hee hee. Enjoy your little visitor, Amy.

Oh Amy, I am so happy for you! Wow... they got someone into your sweet home so fast... as soon as you were certified. What fun to picture a little person in that fantasy room. I bet he's spending a lot of time in your loving arms!!! Which is just what he needs. How long does he stay? Can you take more than one child at a time? How does this all work??

Love to you and your husband and all the little children that will feel your love.

Congratulations Amy! I am so excited for you! I wish I had not missed your online baby shower (school finals, I disappeared for a month and a half) but if there's anything else I can contribute, let me know!

Lisa said...

Amy, Wow that was fast. I am so excited for you and Rich. I bet your new little visitor is having a blast with you both. What a magical loving place you have created for them. I am sure your are providing the best hugs and kisses. Have fun with your new little one. I wish we could see them. But understand why we can't.
((Hugs)) As our China adoption wait grows longer everyday I am thinking that might be the way to go. Not sure yet but you have me thinking.

Dear Amy,

This is so exciting, and I am so happy for you. What a lucky and blessed little one!

Prayers your way,

Judy said...

Blessed to be a blessing. That's you.

At about a year and a half my grandson figured out that Martha Stewart was not a daily guest star on Bob the Builder. Oh, well.

I feel hope for the world knowing that 'cute little buttons' can find a loving home with someone like you. Really, truly, that little one is one blessed button!

You will be much in my prayers!

Jana said...

When ever I think of you recently, I think of the song"Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world,red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight,Jesus loves the little children of the world." How wonderful it is that He has chosen you and Rich to be His hands here on earth! God bless you and those children coming into your arms! Vanessa
