Our first family portrait.
The sign behind David says, "SENAME On Strike." The adoption agency, as well as several other public service offices have been fighting for pay raises over the last couple of weeks. Thank goodness, the lawyer and social worker continued to work on our case, even though they should have been on strike with the rest of their office. We really appreciate not having to delay bringing little Joshua home, so please pray that they get their raise!
After an endless series of bright flashes, he finally had enough! We stopped the picture taking for at least an hour to give him a rest.
So, these are the first pictures of our growing family. We spent a great day getting to know our new son. He's a very happy and loving baby. He likes to be held and kissed. He does not like to lie on his stomach. He's curious and watches everything in the room in wonderment. The not-so-nice things are that he's four pounds underweight and that he seems to have a cold. He's had bronchitis twice before already and so we'll be taking him in to see a doctor as soon as possible. We're looking forward to getting to know him better and watching him grow.
