we just got a letter

From Sam!!

I'm so excited!
I was excited just to get the letter
but when I realized it was written by his own hand,
I could have cried.
He knows English!
We can communicate - really communicate.

He calls us Uncle and Aunty.
I love it!

I don't have a clue why I love this young man,
but I do. Fiercely.
I realized recently
that Tyler loves Marcos the way I love Sam.
How could I not pursue him coming to us??
When we first started the paperwork
I'm ashamed to admit - it was just about doing the right thing.
but now
I am getting very anxious for him to get here.
if I could only figure out a way to get Sam here, too....
