It's GOTCH'A DAY!!!!!!!!!! We GOT our baby Magnus this morning at 9:30 am (or 8:30 pm Minnesota time!) It was an amazing day and first meeting with our lil man!! The orphanage director brought Magnus into the room, that we were waiting in, and like I expected he took one look at all of us and screamed and cried!!!! The girls and I were prepared for a reaction like this and we all just talked to him and tried to comfort him as best as we could as a family!

The girls were absolutely fabulous BIG sisters and were very patient and loving while Magnus adjusted to all of us.

It only took about 25-30 minutes for Magnus to settle down and relax being in my arms!

Here's my baby!!! I signed paperwork in the orphanage and received the background information that I wanted to find! I have pieced together pieces of his "story" and my work here is not done yet!



Magnus just snuggled into me and we are definately doing WELL!!!!



I had to take a picture of his PINK socks and PINK tennis shoes!!!!!!!!!!!


Momma, the girls and baby Magnus, Nana and Grandma Peggy!






Today was an emotional day...one that I will never ever forget! This was meant to be!!! He is a precious little thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm speechless! It sounds like an amazing, yet very difficult day. God bless your new family of 6 and we'll continue to pray for little Magnus' heart!
