I find age 5 a very helpful one...whether it's putting away toys,
his dishes on the counter after a meal...
Or going to the flower farm to help me choose flowers to plant...
Mr. Will happily complies and goes along with me (every Friday he's with me all day)
to wherever it is that we may need to travel.
This particular day he met a new friend.
And checked out the red tractor,
then excitedly ran to tell me all about it.
We walked back and he sat on it and pretended to drive of course.
I was looking for a certain color of flower (yellow) and stopped to look at these herbs.
We walked to the back of the farm and Will navigated the wagon.
He demonstrated some awesome wagon handling skills if I say so myself.
We then hit the jackpot at the greenhouse at the back of the farm
where I found just what I was looking for...
and Will took a little rest.
It was right about this time 3 years ago that we received
our PA and then LOA (letter of approval) from China to adopt Will.
I've been moving a lot of my pictures off
my hard drive to make more room.
I found the below black and white scan of one of the first pictures we saw of Will
in his file in 2008.
I don't have an original picture, it's a copy (not a great one) but I treasure it.
I have no idea how old he was here,
but he's just precious and you can see why we said YES to this little boy!
Presently there are many more little boys than girls on the Waiting Children or Special Needs
lists for China.
If you're thinking of adopting, please consider a son.
