1 month old
Joshua turned 1 month old this past Wednesday. He had his dr. appt. on Wednesday, and is already up to 10 lbs. 12 oz. Mama is putting away some clothes that will be too small!!! He's just as cute as ever, and starting to spend more time awake, especially in the mornings. His foster family loves him, and they are all wonderful with him. I've been privileged to spend lots of time in their home, and I feel so good knowing that Joshua is in this safe place for now.
Chris and I will go visit on Saturday, and we'll get to spend the whole day with him. I'm hoping to convince Chris to try a diaper change - we'll see if I can talk him in to it.
We still plan on bringing Joshua home on September 17th. M, Joshua's birthmom, will have her court hearing that day, and assuming all goes well, then we will meet at the foster home. We will have a placement ceremony, where M releases Joshua to us. I'm told it's very symbolic and meaningful, and there probably won't be a dry eye in the house. We've invited Grandmas and Grandpas and Uncles Michael and Paul to be at our house waiting for us when we get home with Joshua. What a beautiful day of rejoicing that will be!
Joshua is strong and healthy, and I know that God has wonderful things in store for him. I look forward to seeing what his life will hold.
