The weather has been amazingly beautiful every single day here in Henry's country.

Except for the first day. For the first minutes where we had to walk down OUTDOOR steps from the airplane and then sprint ACROSS the runway into a bus while it was POURING rain!!

Really, since then it has been sunny with blue skies and between 70 and 80 degrees every day.

We have been cooped-up indoors with Henry for all of his they do not believe in little children being outdoors too much...especially little ones with health problems like our Henry - before this last 10 day hospitalization for bronchitis he has had at least one other hospitalization for pneumonia and one for chicken pox in his first year of life...

but today we asked and today we got the OK to bring Henry outside for some sun...

and a stroll....

my, but he LOVES the stroller!!!

The minutes daddy would stop, little insistent sounds that could be translated as "keep it moving" would start...

so move we did!

Can't wait to stroll him all over the south suburbs of Chicago!!

Please pray we get the call Monday that court is scheduled for Tuesday!!!


  1. He is so PRECIOUS! I am praying for your court date!

  2. I see you have him bundled up per orphanage standards! :) He is such a doll. Btw, I am the mom Nancy emailed you about. Thanks for agreeing to ask for us! That is very thoughtful. I pray Tuesday court works out. :)

  3. He looks happier and more content already!

  4. so so sweet!!!! love it!
    good luck and praying for good news :)

  5. Count on my prayers, Carla.

  6. Oh yes, being outside is soooo good for kids! You are going to do wonders for him - I just know it! Blessings!

  7. Yay for strollers! And I love the fact that we finally get to see his whole face - minus binky - and those big big eyes in this picture. He's so darn cute! We'll be traveling in winter. Not so excited about that part - but the reward will be worth it.

  8. Praying for you guys!!!!!!!

  9. Oh my gosh. That is one lucky little boy!! What a cutie!
