Update & a Video Chat!

Last week we got 2 new pictures and a little bit of an update on Zhao Yu.  He's looking so much older with his adult teeth in the front. He's such a handsome little guy!  They continue to describe him as happy, outgoing and helpful. We're not sure if his measurements are accurate, but he appears to be really small for his age. This is likely the last update we'll get on him before we go to bring him home, so I think we'll be making a wild stab in the dark at what size clothes and shoes to bring for him!

We also had a very unexpected treat on the other night. We got to have a video chat with our guy!! He was shy but had a smile on his face the entire time. He doesn't speak English, but is able to mimic some things to us. He said "Mommy, Daddy and I love you."  Totally melted my heart.  The translator who was with him told us he'd like us to adopt him.and wanted to know when we're coming to get him.  We got to see around his classroom and we showed him around out house.  The boys got to "meet" him but the girls were sleeping.  He said he likes basketball and wants to learn to play the piano. :)  He's such a brave boy, can you imagine being nearly 8 years old and knowing your whole life is about to change?

We're very thankful for that time with our sweet son, we're hopeful it'll help ease his transition a bit when he comes home.
