(I realize this is a terrible picture. But I didn't want to overwhelm him by taking a dozen shots, trying to get the perfect one...)
Nine months of waiting.
Over a year of praying for his homeland.
Last night, Tejan arrived at our house.
He's extremely polite.
Smaller than I expected.
Full of smiles.
He hates snakes.
Wants to be a teacher or a pastor when he grows up.
I went to bed exhausted last night. Worried about his comfort, and about making good choices regarding the things we introduce to him... concerned about what to feed him. And how to show him love without overwhelming him... Lots to think about.
But here we go...
He goes to the doctor next week - his surgery is scheduled for the 12th of September.
Pray for peace.
Peace in his heart.
Peace in my mind.
Asia's gone this week - so pray for a little extra endurance for me too...
