We met them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What an exciting morning!!! We went with the Rays to the orphanage this morning to meet our facilitator thinking we would then go to another building for some paperwork. When our facilitator got there we actually just went in to the director's office and started learning about the boys histories. Then, because his naptime was just beginning, they brought us Josiah. Poor baby had just started falling asleep when they brought him to us so we didn't get but a couple minutes with him. Sweet baby boy!!!!!!!
After that, some more official business and info. Then in walks Jackson!! What a sweetheart!!!! He loves being held and snuggled and tickled. He also loves to tackle, but he does it so gently :) And he always laughs when you fall down! He loves music and dancing. Guess we'll be loading Joel's phone with music for the trip home! He had a great time today outside with Daddy, especially walking over a little wooden bridge over and over and over and over.... I think Daddy love it too ;)

Okay, so enough with the details, here are some pictures :)
