Little Man's Ouchie

I feel very, very fortunate to be with the agency that we are (International Adoption Net) & to have had a friend that just happened to be over there picking up her son that was able to see our Little Man right after he broke his arm. Here's the update she emailed before she got on the plane home:

So I saw your boy and he is doing well. He was in a cast and they say that he broke 2 bones. I guess he was miserable yesterday but today was smiling and let me love on him. I tried to download a picture but it didn't work. I will call you tomorrow night some time. He will be fine:) I bet this is so hard for your momma's heart. Praying for you.

My adoption coordinator sent me these pictures today, too. I cannot say enough about how all of this is being handled & how they are so sensitive to our feelings as his parents. I mean, my goodness, it's Saturday & I was not expecting to hear anything today!

We're not sure, but we think in this picture he is still in a "pre-cast". I know one thing for sure, I will be shopping online to find him a cool sling because the gauze has got to go! As a side note, it warms my heart to see that he is still wearing the bracelet that Kami made for him.

Praying that we get some news this week that allows us to start making some concrete plans for travel. Thanks to all you sweet friends for sending lots of love & encouragement to this momma in her time of need!

Dardi -- I'm so happy that you got some updates on sweet S. That pic of him is precious! The man next to him is Abebe -- all the kids think of him like their grandpa, and it's nice to see him getting some special attention.

Do you know yet how it happened?


Dardi said...

Jen ~ It is my understanding that he fell off some play equipment :( Thanks for checking in!

Poor little man! I love that he's wearing his bracelet...your hugs are getting through to him!

Praying for your little mans arm and your Momma's heart. I can't imagine how hard it is to be so far away when you're little boy is hurting.

Hoping everything comes through soon and your travel date is set!
