Baby Pryce is coming home!!

It looks like I will be heading back to Oklahoma next weekend.
And I couldn't be happier!

For those who know me, or have been reading for a while, you know that my brother and sis-in-law are adopting a sweet baby boy from Korea. It is a process that took forever but it is almost over, 1 more week!

They found out who their child was in April 2011. I posted about it here. 
This was the first picture they saw of their chubby precious baby. He is with his foster mother.
 They decided on the name Pryce. 
I wrote in my post that they still had to wait 4-9 months until they would be able to travel to Korea and bring him home. That was 15 months ago... 

Every few months they would receive new pictures and a short update on how he was doing.
He turned one September 18, 2011 and his foster mother dressed him in the traditional Korean wear (or so I'm told!).

I can't imagine as a parent what they (and all the other waiting parents) were feeling knowing they have a child they can't take home. It has to be heartbreaking. 
I know it was heartbreaking for me and I am his aunt.

I love him so much already it's nuts!
And I love this outfit so much! 
Capri overalls, multiple long sleeve shirts with a short sleeve over is totally awesome.
I hope they bring this home.

Next Thursday they land back in Oklahoma with their son. I will be at there with a box of kleenex and a camera. I know Pryce will have no idea who we are, but it won't matter! He is already loved more than he will ever know. I can't wait for him to finally be with his family.

Please keep them in your prayers. They will travel Thursday to Korea and stay one week. Also pray for for my new sweet nephew's transition, his whole world is about to change... Also little Jett's...

kisses.

Tears in my eyes. 15 months is wayyyy too long to wait. I mean, I don't even know them, but I want to be at the airport homecoming! But I'm not a creeper. So I won't be there. :) But I know how amazing it's going to be. And Pryce is pretty dang cute. You are a lucky, lucky aunt!
