he's ours forever.....



The foster mother and brother were so sweet. They gave us many gifts including a hanbok for Oliver which is a traditional Korean outfit. I had given her Oliver's baby book at our meeting on Monday. I asked her to write a letter to Ollie in it. She glued a picture of the two of them in it along with notes from all of the members of her family. She handed him to me and left quickly as she was beginning to cry. We are so thankful for her care and love.

HI! One of my blogging friends sent me over to see your new baby--HURRAY for miracles! Especially beautiful Korean boy miracles!

You've probably already settled on a name for Ollie by now, but I'm rather partial to "Scott" as a middle name because that's my little boy's name. :)

Welcome home! I'm sorry that I could not greet all of you at the airport but it looks like you had a wonderful crowd. Glad you are safe and sound and home will Oliver. I can not WAIT to meet him!
