That means two things! One, we are approved. We are matched. Basically, this is the equivalent of court in other countries. These boys are ours unless we don't show up to get them (which, barring death, would never happen) and we can name them and everything. Two, we are approved. We are matched. Basically, that means we can slap these boys faces on every FB post, blog and billboard in this whole wide world. We don't have to hide their faces anymore!
I know what you all came for! So without further ado, this is them folks!
Yelling is just how we roll in the Anderson house! Open up that mouth wider kid, so the neighbors can hear you, like any other self respecting Anderson!
This is how Jake says something is "Okay" one of the few English words he knows. I think he likes to use it most when he doesn't understand a word people are saying lol!
We can't wait to get this guy home and into his new life. So please prepare to welcome home sweet Jacob DangXing. We will use both names at the start to see which he prefers. Jacob was the name of a very good friend of my husband's who recently passed away from aggressive cancer. DangXing is Jake's Chinese name. We don't know which he'll like better, so we will use both to start.
Kicking it summer style. Does he look cool or what? Love the little boy capris and the nautical shirt. He looks ready for the beach! Too bad we live in the desert and are completely landlocked! But he sure does look cute!
Love this kid's smile. There's just something about it. So impish and adorable. That big stomach he's sporting doesn't mean he's eaten a few too many Twinkies. It's the result of his distended spleen and liver from his Beta Thal Major and improper treatment.
Chinese kids always make this sign for pictures. I'm not sure what it means, to be honest, but they sure love it. No series of pictures is complete without this sign thrown in for good measure!
