New Henry pictures...same orange hoodie...






Today, we got new pictures of Henry from our adoption agency. We were hoping that he would be wearing some of the new clothes we sent him, but apparently his foster mom loves that orange hoodie...and some pink socks. :) We think he's super cute anyway.


We also requested an updated picture of his cute little ear. So many of our friends and family have been asking about it that we thought it was the right time for it to make its blog debut. Henry has auricular (ear) atresia, which means that his ear canal is partially closed. His outer ear is also misshapen...a bit. We are going to consult with specialists, and later on he will have surgery to open up his ear canal and reshape his ear. From what we know, there will be two surgeries starting when he is about 5 years old.

He seems to have slimmed down a bit also, which makes us hopeful that he will at least be able to wear some of the clothes we have for him. We'll have to wait for his next checkup to see how he is progressing. We also just want to thank everyone for their kindness and concern for us as we go through this process. Everyone has been very supportive of our adoption, and it is comforting for us to know that Henry has been welcomed and loved by so many even before he has arrived.
