It's a Boy!

Good Morning! IT'S A BOY!!!! Wes's days of feeling like he is living in a sorority house are soon to be over. Yesterday afternoon we received a referral for a 12 month old boy from Heart of Mary Villa orphanage in Malabon City, Philippines. He turned 1 last weekend on May 9th. I do have to say that I had to giggle a little when I first saw his picture...he is a chunk! So cute and I just want to kiss his chubby little cheeks. His report went on to say that he has a healthy appetite which is good to know with our family as we all like to eat. Don't worry, I will share more details and a picture soon. :)

Congratulations to you and your family! Your son is such a cutie! My daughter was also at Heart of Mary Villa and let me tell you that your son is in good hands :o) It's a very good orphanage, the kids are well cared for and the nuns and nannies running the place are absolutely amazing! Congratulations!!!
