Young Love

I intended on this post being about something totally different, but after seeing New Day's blog post today, I had no other choice than to postpone my original post (which by the way is about a conversation I had with our Priest yesterday about adoption and starting an adoption ministry at our Church).

Anyway, the below post is straight from The New Day blog and brought me to tears today. It is no secret that Drew and Adahlynn have a little "thing" for each other. We have several pictures of Drew and Adahlynn together. But for some unexplained reason, this post with these pictures really choked me up this morning. I am so thankful they have each other, but soon they will be separated when they are each united with their families. Although I have not seen them firsthand, it is obvious in their pictures that they love each other very much. I am hoping that Adahlynn's family and ours will be able to keep in touch so these two can continue the friendship they have formed from their time at New Day.

Little Lovebirds
On the way to Beijing for a preschool field trip today, it quickly became apparent that Drew has a crush.

Unfortunately, he didn't plan his moves very carefully, so he ended up sitting in an entirely different car than the apple of his eye, so the whole way to Beijing we were regaled with cries of "Where's Adahlyn? Where's Adahlyn?" Our reassurance that she was simply in another vehicle left him unconvinced; he seemed worried that we'd left her behind. But when he caught a quick glance of his beloved through the window of her car when we made a quick stop at a gas station, he was satisfied that they would be reunited soon.

And reunited they were. As we strolled through the park on a warm autumn afternoon, the two young lovebirds couldn't have asked for more. Adah wore a beautiful purple dress and Drew sported some pretty cool sunglasses. Butterflies danced in the wind and the aroma of sweet flowers filled the air. The "atmosphere" was clearly more than Drew could handle, and against his better judgement, he succumbed to a temptation many young boys do when they first desire to express their affection to the fairer sex.

He tackled her.

That's right, ladies and gentlemen, he took her down. A simple hug couldn't possibly express his love adequately; even a bear hug wouldn't do. In an effort to show just how powerful and strong his feelings were for her, he pinned her to the ground.

Let's just say it didn't go over well.

But like most lover's spats, this one ended happily. They made up quickly, and soon walked away hand in hand. Drew even planted a kiss on Adah's little hand, and when he saw that she didn't mind this expression of his affection, he did it again. Because what boy wouldn't steal two kisses when he had the chance?!

Don't worry... We now know we better keep an eye on these two.
