First Glimpse of Nicholas

Well, I just got my first glimpse of my sweet Nicholas!  First I got a text of the picture I am about to show you.  Then I got the Skype call that I was praying so hard for!  He was very busy making quite the mess with some cracker sticks and Brent was hoping to be able to see if he could get him to play next.  I'm afraid he may not have any luck until the crackers are gone.  lol  We all know though that the key to a child's heart that you are just meeting for adoption is through food often.  They need to know that they can get that need met before they will let you into their hearts.  We learned about that in our foster parent training over and over as we went through trainings over and over as we did all of those adoptions through the years.  Hopefully he is learning something very important right now as he eats the cracker sticks that he has scattered about.  Ok now you have to see my little cutie!

Isn't he just adorable?!?!
I'll give you more details later. 
I'm not planning to go to bed until the visit is over and I know how it went, but I will fill you all in on the rest after I get some sleep! 
Don't forget our GIVEAWAY going on.
Don't forget to check out THIS post to see another great way you can help.
Don't forget to VOTE for our blog and give it more exposure so more people see the waiting children and see from our children that it can be a huge blessing!
If you didn't see or share the waiting children blog posts from over the weekend then check them out!
