Eric and I were also treated to a glimpse of Dima today. Another adoptive family is currently in Dima's region adopting 3 little ones from the same orphanage. For the past few days my fellow adoptive momma had attempted to see Dima but to no avail. I had resigned to the fact that the next time I would see Dima's sweet face would be when we actually meet him for the first time. Instead I was taken back when I logged into my Facebook account and saw a picture of Dima that had been taken today! There he was in all of his glory! Dima had been playing outside and there was dirt all over his little face. He was wearing a camo shirt and was playing with a toy gun. Our first thought was that he will fit right in with his brothers. My boys love to play outside with the Nerf guns and dig in the dirt/sand. There are some days that when the boys come in from playing all you can see are the whites of their eyes because they are covered with dirt! When I showed the pictures to the boys they were very excited and Elijah said, "I think Dima is going to be soooooo much fun!". You know what? I totally agree! My fellow adoptive momma took nearly 50 pictures of sweet Dima but I will only share my 3 favorite pictures. You can see that Dima is ALL boy and loves to play.
|Precious Dima. If you look closely at his mouth you can see some food.|
|Dima was showing his visitor his gun. He was very proud of it!|
|He shot at his visitor and she played dead for him. Apparently he got quite a kick out of that.|
The past few weeks have also strengthened our faith. If anyone doubts the power of prayer I would love to share with them the amazing ways in which God has been faithful to us and so many other families. God truly loves these children and has wonderful plans for their lives. Our family is looking forward to watching how God uses Dima for His glory. Then again, I have already seen evidence of this.
Hold on sweet Dima! Just a few more weeks and you will be able to play in the dirt with your very own Mama and Papa!!
