Joseph and his pin

A couple of days ago at SFCV, we had a huge team who came to visit just for the morning. One of the ladies on the team asked me politely: "Can we give the kids pins?" Without even thinking about it, I told her yes and so she gave one to Joseph and Seth.
When I was about to walk Joseph home from lunch, I saw that his pin was an United States and Texas flag.

Joseph's forever family is from Texas!!!!

I immediately told him he needed to place the pin in a safe place and to not lose it! What I didn't realize was that he would want to wear it all the time.
So now Joseph has been wearing this pin on his shirt everyday. I love seeing it because it is a reminder of his family back in Texas. He does not know this right now but he will hopefully understand that his forever family was with him way before Gotcha day. :)

If you would like to know more about Joseph's family and to help support them in their adoption, please see the link:
You can also see to donate to the adoption fee.

Thank you all for your prayers and support. Keep praying for a quick PA!! :)
