“Hope deferred maketh the heart sick, but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12
The guys were waiting in the lobby of their hotel and Addie and I were waiting with them on Skype!!
The guide came to be with Blake and Grant, and I was able to meet her too!
Then she got word that Tate would not be arriving for several more hours.
So Addie and I went to bed.
I woke up at 1 a.m. and tried to reach the guys and couldn’t.
I woke up at 2 a.m. and tried again! They were already back in their room with Tate, and THEY ANSWERED my Skype call!!
And there was our sweet boy, blowing me kisses and saying “Mama!” over and over and over!!
Isn’t he beautiful???!!!!!!
Tate ran right to Blake when he arrived, saying “Baba!!” He jumped in Blake’s arms and kissed his cheek!!!!!!
They definitely had told Tate about us and showed him our photos we sent!!!!
Tate is full of life!!! And busy, busy!!!
They are doing GREAT!!!! I am watching them in a little box on the corner of my screen as I type this!! And it is now 3:15 a.m.!!!!
Tate is coloring and then coming to the computer screen to show me his work! He is also putting part of his snacks under my photo on the screen to share with me!!!
Praise the Lord with us!!!! WE ARE SIMPLY IN AWE.
Tate had a bag with him, and it is FULL of his artwork, photos on a CD, and a beautiful scrapbook of his time at the orphanage! I am making the guys promise to hand carry ALL of it home! No wet suitcases for those precious gifts!!!
HE’S HERE!!!! OUR TATE IS HERE!!!
