Gideon cannot wait to be a big brother. Whenever we are around babies Gideon sings to them and talks to them. It is the most endearing thing we’ve ever seen. We cannot wait to see him sing and talk to his future brother or sister.
Gideon and Abby patiently wait to meet baby brother or sister!
When it is time to purge books and toys that Gideon has outgrown, he says he wants to keep his favorites for the baby. So now we have a dresser full of books and toys in the room we plan to convert to a nursery someday!
When Gideon was 3 he started to draw his first stick people, and this is one of the first pictures that he ever drew.
Gideon (top right corner), Elina (bottom right corner), Daniel and our cat Abby (bottom left corner), and his baby brother or sister (top left corner).
It’s been on our refrigerator door for over 2 years, and it will stay there until the day when it is framed and hung in baby’s nursery.
This picture is a daily reminder to us. It is a reminder that we haven’t even met, but we already love and care so much about you and your baby. It is a reminder that we can hope and dream that someday we will be a family of 4. And it is a reminder that adoption is the right path for us.
Thank you. Thank you so much for considering us as a family for your baby. Thinking about meeting you someday fills us with hope and comfort even when the wait seems long.
