Isaac Mérant Taylor

...or so that will be his name. inshalla. i finally decided so those of you who were tired of referring to him as my lil man have an official name... unofficially. i won't change it legally till his placement, but in the meantime he can get used to it and they will still call him Kervenson at the "O" so not to complicate paperwork, and confuse the birth family and the nannies.

i'm absolutely 110% in LOVE with this lil baby. he was such a joy to have with me. he laughs and giggles and screams and squeals. it's so precious and i miss the sound of his baby babble so much already. Isaac means "laughter" and was so fitting. just look at him.

anyway, we all had a great time at Villa Therese. i stayed in my first haitian hotel and really enjoyed the company of those from HIS Home and others adopting. the coffee and food were great and it had a nice little pool. who from KC doesn't love 80 degree weather in february?!? Chris and Hal did a wonderful job planning and keeping up with a million things at once. God bless them =) i'll post more pictures soon.

In Haiti

For those of you that don't have facebook and haven't seen.... my Ma and i are safely in haiti. Spent today lounging around the pool with the kids and got to meet my lawyer for the first time. We found out that the new laws aren't officially in effect yet, but as of january this year they are cracking down on min and max age of adoptive parents. The word in the mtg was that it was 35 for single parents and at least one of the parents (in a couple married at least 5 yrs) must be 35. Please pray i don't have to wait 6 years just to start. That is not even an option in my mind. 30 years old may be fine. I've never minded getting older, but i've never in my life wanted my next birthday to come so badly (i turn 30 november this year).

We also had a very nice lunch with Dorothy, Casey, and Mickenson and his mother. For those of you who do not know, Dorothy runs an infant rescue in PAP and i have had the pleasure of staying with her the last couple trips. Casey is part of the Brooks clan in GA that my sister, Natasha, is going to stay with this week and will be there for a few months helping with Much Ministries. Mickenson is a precious little boy waiting to have a surgery that was funded by my Ma and folks at KC Life Ins in KCMO.

We have a couple great photographer types on this trip so i'm sure to have a bunch of fotos in about a week

Tomorrow we are headed to the playa.... =)

Also... i'd like to thank everyone back home for the support, baby gifts, donations, prayers and most of all LOVE.
