Jin


Many of you have already heard our news: Today we filed the paperwork to adopt Jin! I've looked at him thousands of times already, and I just smile every time I see his little smile. I hope we'll get to go pick him up in Korea sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but we'll see when we get the call. We're so excited and happy, and thankful and yes, even a little bit scared. He's been a precious, but kind of fuzzy thought for a long while now, and it's hard to describe how it feels to see his picture. Many, many happy tears have been shed around this house today. Well, I could go on and on, but I'll save more for another day. Thank you all for rooting for us, encouraging us, listening, lending your shoulders, and telling us again and again that we'll one day be great parents. We've held on to your every word!

Julie,
I am so extremely excited for you and Zander! That is awesome news!!! I keep checking back on your blog to see what number you are, and all of a sudden there is this picture of this beautiful little boy!! He is absolutely adorable. I know the last time I posted on your blog I said we have to get together, and I meant to email you back, but needless to say it has been quite a busy summer with doing the mosaic, doing other people's weddings, my wedding stuff and writing my thesis. Yikes! I would love to get together though and catch up!

I am ridiculously excited for you, but also very frightened. Look at that picture! He is royalty! How will you discipline when he is able to command whole armies with a twitch of his pinkie?

Most likely, I am underestimating you. If anyone can command a king, the Cannons can do it.

Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments! I really appreciate it. We've turned everything in and now the clock is ticking. 10-14 weeks from last Tuesday, we'll travel to Korea!
