Favorite picture

I can't resist. Here's my favorite picture of Abe Rooney:

And really, more details tomorrow. For now, I must go to bed. What a day. Thank you for all the amazing comments of congratulations. We love you all. I think Abe does too. We feel like lucky people. Can you believe that dimple in his right cheek?

Congratulations, Lori & Ted. I have been admiring your blog from afar for a while now. But I am still here and still praying.

Jennifer and Jody said...

So handsome! Jody and I were oohing and ahhhhing over him last night.
We want to come to the blog union to meet everyone, but we don't know at what stage of our adoption we will be at that time and if the stars align it could be so close to our own court date/travel that we need to save our pennies to get to Africa! It might be a last minute decision. Priceline!

Oh my goodness!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! I hadn't checked your blog in a couple of days! I am soooooooooooooooooooooo happy for you guys and I can't wait for you to be able to bring him home!! He is so gorgeous, you will just eat him up when you see him. Especially when he gives you his precious little smile, it just melts you!

So glad to see what the Lord has done.

The Quinn Girls said...

Yipeee, yahoo and hooray!!!! You and Ted are pretty adorable but Abe is definitely the cutest Rooney. Congratulations. Did you get the pic I sent?

emily said...

I was thinking last night as I went to bed what a journey this has been for your family. God's ways are so often different from our own, yet they are always best (though they don't necessarily "feel" like that at the time)!

To see 108 comments tells me that the Lord used your family and this precious baby in the lives of so many and that He used this struggle to draw others to Himself. I think that is amazing and as I said before, I can't wait to see what He has for this little boy.

Stephanie said...

And what a fabulous photograph that is! Basking in the sun, just waiting for you to take him home. What a precious little peach!
