Too Adorable!


What a blessing! Today, I opened up a package from a woman who spent alot of time with Alexsey last week. In it was a disk with lots and lots of pictures of Alexsey! This is such a thoughtful and meaningful gift--- I don't think that a hundred thank-yous would suffice. I even got to see video of Alexsey walking with a walker, playing, and talking. Some of my kids watched over my shoulder and commented how much fun it would be once Alexsey was home! Thank you Kate for such a selfless gift..... your contribution to Alexsey's adoption is a testimony to your love for Christ. Thank you.

P.S. For the fun of it I looked online for a free photo editor to see if I could make his eyes *pop* with blue. Any suggestions?

If you can't find anything else, you could always download a free trial of Photoshop from the Adobe site. :)

What a sweetheart he is! Just think how excited he will be to have mom and dad come to bring him home.

He is so adorable! I wish I could meet him and hug and hold him once he gets home to you! What a blessing the disc is!

Hi Christine,

I think what you're looking for is Adobe Lightroom, because it has individual saturation sliders for each color. So you could make the blue more intense or bright without the rest of the colors becoming more agressive.

There should be evaluation versions of it, but if you'd like me to do it, I'd be glad to.

WOW Christine, I've been catching up on a few weeks of posts and you have just had so many exciting surprises in that time. Just letting you know that even though I havent been around much I am still praying you see him sooner than you expect! (although in light of all these unexpected photos I may change that to "you get to hold him sooner than you expect") He is going to grow in leaps and bounds when he has his big brothers and sisters encouraging him every day!

What a treasure you've been given! It might be neat for Alexsey to see a framed picture of himself up on your walls when he comes home to the U.S.. Has anybody shown him pictures of you and John and the gang and told him you are his new Mama and Daddy and family? Or is there still a chance that things could fall through? (in which case it wouldn't be fair to get his hopes up, only to dash them.) Oh boy, I am sooo anxious for Alexsey to be united with his new family! He has no idea the loving that is going to be showered over him.....While he looks happy, I keep thinking, "You ain't seen nothin' yet!"
Enjoy your photos and videos and please keep sharing the odd one with us, out here in blog-land....maybe we could peek at one every other week or something?

I'm loving your story so much! I have decided to donate toward a local adoption. This family has not made any public appeal for funds choosing rather to trust the Lord for His provision. (Doesn't He provide either way?) I wish I could help everyone but you seem to be doing so great with your fundraising that I thought I'd help another orphan.
