With only a picture to go on, we fell head over heels in love with this little guy. His captivating eyes stole our hearts and we worked and prayed long and hard to be able to make him our own.
We met Quinton for the first time on June 20, 2011 and it was love at first sight.
We prepared ourselves as best we could that the little boy we had fallen in love with in the picture might need time to love us in return. It was honestly one of my biggest fears. But take a look at his smile.
After just one day, he was already making this mama's dreams come true. He not only accepted our love, but reciprocated it too.
How does your love for someone continue to grow just when you think you couldn't possibly love them anymore? You wake up the next day and they smile at you like this:
And they lay their head on you like this:
And they look at you with beautiful eyes that say "I love you too".
\They make you fall so in love, you feel like this:
And they adore you even when you have no clue what you are doing ;)
His smile gets a little sweeter every day and our love for him continues to grow.
To my baby boy: A month ago today we landed in your country. On July 5th, the court declared you ours. This Saturday it will be official and 6 days from today we will take you from that orphanage and march through those big green gates and never look back.
Our blog is titled A Match Made in Heaven and no other title could hold so true. You are ours my sweet, sweet boy-handpicked by God.
We love you bunches!
