More Shopping!

Monday- Well, today was a holiday in Korea. Therefore, the places we planned on going to were closed for the day. (It is kind of like our Memorial Day). So we chose to go back to Insadong. I really liked it there anyways. We had a guy on the street paint us a fan. (gorgeous).. Made our way through the CROWDS!! (Understatement.) And just wore ourselves completely out. We made a few more purchases- and came back to the hotel for ER to nap. (us too). And then went back out for Pizza.
Tomorrow is a big day. At 11:00 am here- 9 pm Monday night for you all- we will be taking custody of Benjamin. For us it is all very exciting but for him it is going to be very traumatic. He has been under the care of the Foster Mother for 9 months. She is his caretaker/ nannie/ mother. He is going to be so scared and upset. Please pray that we will do the right things to make his transition as easy as possible. And remember ER in your prayers too. She is processing all of this faster than I ever dreamed. Already the questions are coming about her own adoption story and how this one compares. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be a hard day on her as well.

Next Post--- our first pictures as a family of 4!!!!!!

We will be praying for you all as you begin your "new" life. Praying especially for Benjamin to feel the enourmous amount of love that you all have for him and for his fears of the "unknown" to vanish!! It will be a hard day, no doubt but God is with you, draw strength from his never ending presence. We can't wait to see pictures of the new Brown family of four!

Sitting at the computer praying now. Sarah's adoption was traumatic for Jack as well as he witnessed her being so upset. It got better right away after she napped and woke up happy.
