We have a new son---Stanislav Thomas Thibault

I can't show you any pictures because we are running around like crazy. We had court at 12noon, before that ran around getting things lined up. Court was a breeze. Just wanted to know how we could possibly take care of 8 kids and 2 of them DS. (I don't know....I guess I will find out:-)

After court you have to patiently wait while they make 10 copies of the 10 page document, sew them together by hand, gluw with elmers glue some special seal on them and then stamp them several times in several places before the judge then signs. Wow...me and patience do not go together when you have a whole bunch of deadlines to catch and hope and pray that people will be in their office when you get there. We got his new birth certificate, got his passport, made it home for dinner (quite hungry after all of that.) Stas got his first bath...didn't mind it a bit.

Ricky loves Stas and was very pleasantly surprised to see him in his room when he woke up. He has been nothing but loving. AMEN!!!!!!

Feeding Stas will be interesting. He doesn't chew, just swallows mush. He drank at the orphanage from a giant teet-like nipple. Huge with a huge hole. We don't have that.

Will post again when we can.
Got to get to a train....

Thank you all for your prayers...you are the best.
