Meet Henry Jesse

The little boy we previously wrote about is going to be ours! We have been waiting patiently (well, as much as we could) for almost a month to hear if we would get him, and we got a call from Holt this morning. He was born on August 3, 2008, and has a minor medical condition called auricular atresia. Basically, the ear canal on his right side is mostly closed, and that ear is a little misshapen. Later on, he will need a surgery to open the ear canal, and one more to cosmetically fix the outer ear. We think he is perfect and just too cute. Even his little ear is super cute.

We still have a lot of paperwork to complete, so please pray with us that the process will be quick. We expect that he will be home within the next 6 months. We are especially hoping that we have him before his first birthday.

His birth name is Eun-wu (pronounced oon-oo), but we are changing his first name to Henry. We will use at least part of his Korean name as his middle name to honor his cultural heritage.

We are super excited and blessed. We can't wait to bring him home!
