Big News!

Meet the little guy that has us running around in a frenzy of paperwork...

If God wills it, we hope to make him a part of our family!  
He is two years old and has a little something extra 21st Chromosome...this little guy has Down Syndrome.

Sadly, in his country, there is no place for him...he was deemed unacceptable, flawed, undesirable and placed in an orphanage where he has spent most of his life.  But God doesn't view him like this...and neither do we :)  He is precious.  He means something.  We just pray that God can prepare us to be the best we can be for this little man.

We are very excited and nervous about bringing this little guy home.  We have already experienced what a roller coaster ride adoption is... but after all the events that have happened to us during our discernment process, we are trusting that this is the child that God wants to bring into our family. 

Please pray for us as we start this uphill battle for the life of this little one.  Pray that our hearts and home are made ready for him and that his little heart is made ready to accept us as his Mom and Dad.  Pray that all of our children will mesh and bond with this little man and that he will thrive as a Perry!

Much more info. to come as we get further along in the process...for right now, we thought it best to keep the country and other details private until we get a little further along in the process to bring our boy home.
