Jude Update (For Those Who Were Wondering)

He and his dad are completely in love.

He kisses my picture, and kissed the phone when I called the other day.

He knows how to make the sign of the cross (taught by his father).

He is now comfortable enough with his dad to be naughty.

There was a brief scare when he was found to have been exposed to TB. A chest x-ray revealed no infection. Thank God, because, in that case, he would have been sent back to the orphanage for quarantine and treatment and adopted at some later date, who knows when.

He is coming home tomorrow night. I can't wait.

Oh, so glad that the TB wasn't there! I can't wait to hear about his arrival -- when you can tear yourself away from each other, of course.

Pentimento said...

Thank you so much, all! Please pray for their safe return home. In Need, he just turned two last week.
