I realized that I needed to put pictures to words to remember our Gotcha Day. Our agency director, Sue, actually sent all of these to us….
Jason and I seeing Judson Obsi
Approaching him gently…no tears!
Ahh, there are the tears…those clothes and tennis ball are the only thing we have from his orphanage days.
You can see he is looking for an out…anyone? Please?
Jason and Sue got in on the action to see if they could calm him…it didn’t work.
This is Hewitt…she is amazing. She talked to him for several minutes and calmed him right down. I realized later that we left without giving her a chance to tell him goodbye and it just hurts my heart. She cared for him for 9 months and I can imagine that she was a source of comfort and stability for him.
We had several other parents at the T house that day and we shared many conversations as we let him acclimate to us a little more.
Judson has an amazing dad and I love how he began to look to him from day one. Those few days we had just us and Judson Obsi were such a blessing and I am so thankful for our moments, just the three of us.
I will always remember this day for the simplicity of it and the significance of it. No turning back, Judson is finally where he was created to be.
