Happy Gotcha Day Sweet Jesse!!!

For those of you that don't know Jesse was a surprise to us...he was what we call in the adoption world a "sibling call"....which does NOT happen very often. About four and a half years ago I got a phone call from our adoption agency we used with Noah and the lady on the other end of the phone said Tae Min's (Noah) birth mother had another baby and would like for you guys to have him. WHAT??? Of course I said YES immediately, without even talking to Marc. Ooops!!! Luckily he was on board too!! SO about 6 months later, Jesse was 7.5 months old we flew to LAX and picked up our third son!! He was so pitiful coming out of the gate sucking that thumb and his escort in tears because he had become attached to him just from the long plane ride to the US. They handed him to us and needless to say he was scared to death and not real impressed with his new parents...Dad was just ok and Mom was SCARY!! Of course I wanted to just love on him and eat him up but he wasn't having any part of it. He had the worst comb over ever and two teeth that actually looked like 3!!! One was two teeth that looked like they grew together. We knew there would be an orthodontic bill in our future!! Fast forward a couple of weeks and he was the happiest, most energetic boy ever!! He was our Jesse!!! Now, he makes me laugh until I cry and never ceases to amaze me and the boy goes crazy over trucks especially if it is towing something or has a trailer!!!! Thank God for miracles or we wouldn't have this precious little boy!!!!

oh and the tooth now looks normal..... LOL!!!!
