Joseph.

Recently the little boy we were going to adopt and then didn't was placed in a home as an only child to two parents who have been on the waiting list for two years.

They actually inquired about him before we were asked if we would adopt him.

I talked to his former foster mom yesterday and she said that they are just thrilled to have him. They also have experience with "special needs", one of the parents even has a sibling that is "special needs" and has a fabulous relationship with them.

She told me that they got his hair cut and spiked it up. They dress him up very cute and already got a family photo taken of them all together.

They said, "Who was saying there is something wrong with him? He is so smart and learning so much!" Sounds like exactly the parents that he deserves. Ones that were so in love with him they couldn't imagine life without him.

He moved in with them after 3 visits. Everything moved very quickly and he is "doing great".

Congratulations Joseph, so glad you are FINALLY home.

What a relief. I have thought of him from time to time. Every family deserves THEIR child... and equally so every child deserves the right family for them. I am so happy for that family. Years of being childless -- now their arms are full of that adorable little boy!

I'm so happy to hear that. Like you said, every child needs a family that is madly in love with them. Sounds like Joseph got that family!!

How exciting. God has a plan for each of his children. We are really holding on to that around here and would appreciate prayers on behalf of 1/2 siblings that we have had for 18 mo.

I'm so happy for them! I know you've been worried about him and wondering whether or not you made the right decision. This just goes to show you that God's timing is perfect and that He has a plan. :-)

If you could, I think it'd be cool to write them a letter.
