Awesome Day!

Today was a very, very good day. We were amazed at the difference in Nolan today, and especially his willingness to accept correction without a meltdown. It was a great way to end our trip here. We are packing and hoping to be in bed early tonight — and Cincy-bound tomorrow!! Nolan is so excited about seeing his new home and becoming part of this family. He asks over and over again if we’re really sure that the kids are excited about meeting him, and he loves to retell part of his adoption story — “And you kept waiting and waiting to come for me, and they kept telling you, ‘Not yet.’ And you kept saying, ‘We really want to go get him!'” He is definitely feeling loved, but still uncertain about if it’s real or not.

Because we have to finish packing, today’s update is mostly just pictures of our day at the Wild Wilderness Drive-Through Safari in Gentry, AR. Enjoy! (And please don’t forget to keep praying as we get through our flights tomorrow.)

So excited that he was able to buy a tiger to do with his pal, Lion. I'm guessing her name will be Tiger.
