Just a little new news on Gus. First of all we will be meeting with our caseworker to sign the homestudy and send it in on Tuesday morning. The other information we receieved is that Gus was recently moved from the Holt orphanage to a place called Ilsan. Our current understanding of Ilsan is that it is a home for people with disabilities of all different ages. The nice part is that Gus will be getting Physical therpay everyday now. He was getting physical therapy twice a week. Hopefully this will help him build some core strength for sitting up, crawling and eventually walking. Our understanding is that they thought the tranisition would go well because Gus has no stranger anxiety, Mr. social likes meeting new people. Hopefully he will like meeting his Mommy and Daddy.
Current prayer requests: that the transition goes smoothly, that the increased physical therpay increases his body strength, that the paperwork goes through smoothly and quickly, and then as always patience.

We got a well baby report on Gus today. He is now 16 months old. He weighs 17 lbs still under 3% and is 30 inches long which has moved him up to under 10%. His nutrition is at moderate. He has his top two front teeth and bottom two center teeth. He is still at a 9 month social development and 7 month gross and fine motor development. Not crawling yet or sitting up on his own for any length any of time. We are very happy with the report. Please continue to pray for the paperwork process, no more delays, for Gus' health and development and our patience.

I know it has been a while since I have written. We have been on a stand still waiting for the extra piece of paperwork. I got the call this morning that I can go and pick it up today. YEA!! That is good news. Now we will be able to get it in Bethany's hands and see if it is enough. Hopefully we will know more soon. In the meantime, please continue to pray for our little one and this process. Pray that this document gives Korea and Bethany the answers they need to determine if this adoption is a good fit for little Gus. We are so ready to know if he will truly be ours forever! Thanks for all of your continued support.
