4:24 AM just got off the phone

Well Winston is ours!! Pictures coming
Scott and I finally connected - I landed up sleeping on the office floor waiting for them. Winston is doing great - talking up a storm and exploring and of course EATING
It is 6:30 PM their time so they are heading out. There was 3 in their group and 2 other families from another agency all together getting their children. Scott is very thankful for the one mother in their group Nancy - who will be mum to all!!
The orphanage was great - Winston was even give photo's of when he was a baby and we found that he has a really best friend in Denmark that left last month so need to find out who that is? So they can stay connected. I could hear him talking lots in the background and Scott says he is smart. He does have sores all over his body - they say he is allergic to mosquito bits and also Scott noticed his ribs sticking out which may have been from the surgery - thankfully I have doc apt set up right away a wk after they get home. It was so good to hear his voice...I can't wait to see photo's. He did cry very hard once the Nanny said goodbye and it seemed like she was very sad too. I know he was one of the favorites - well being there so long he has to be. They want to stay in touch and that is good. I do need to do this with all the kids - got behind this year. I have been so faithful with Reagan's orphanage. I guess a package to each orphanage is due.. esp. Since we have Kaitlyn's 3 year Gotcha Day next wknd - HAPPY FATHER'S DAY everyone - esp. my man Scott.

Scott, if you get the chance in Guangzhou, check out the guest book in the Starbucks on the island. Glenn wrote in it last year and I'd love for someone to carry on the tradition!

Much love and prayers for everyone! :)
