Dear Djemson.

You are an amazing little boy. I loved you the moment I laid eyes on your picture.  You have such an infectious smile.  You love to laugh.  You fell in love with your papa when we arrived in Haiti.  You love the friends you have there.  I adored hearing you yell to your friend Tomas....and hearing him yell back to you so you could find each other.  The two of you switch plates half way thru a meal was just too funny to me.  You would both have the same exact items on your plate, but for some reason it tasted better if you switched.  I was so proud of you when you gave the rest of your eggs to Danny.  You will share with the kids who don't have what you have.  I love that about you.
I love that you found it necessary to put a juice box straw in your straw cup.  And it worked!

My boy Djemson, I loved the passion in your eyes to learn about your fwem.  How excited you were when you discovered we have our own machin.  You loved have your foto taken with your fwem. 

However, my boy Djemson.  You gave your mama two white hairs.  They were not there before my trip to meet you.  It may have had something to do with you running up and down the rebar stairs.  Or you hanging off the edge of the wall, or the roof.  Maybe it was the jumping off the four foot wall.  Either way my dear I will start coloring my hair.  Your mama is far to young to have blan hair. 

Love You

Love your blog!! I found you on the MOPS forum and we are in the very early stages of thinking about considering praying about (can you tell I'm stalling!) adopting from Haiti. I can't wait to see how the Lord leads us down this path and to celebrate with you when your bring yours home!!
