He has our approval.

Yesterday we received some pictures and videos of our new son.  We would love to share them with everyone but we aren't allowed to do that yet.  The pictures and video were shot by some friends who took over to Ethiopia a care package for him.  The videos were particularly interesting.  In one he was opening a birthday card we had sent.  It was one of those cards that plays music when you open it.  His face when the music started playing (Celebrate by Kool and the Gang) was simply priceless.  The second video was him talking to us (through a translator).  I found it amusing that in the short time he had to say something to us he chose to say that 1) he thinks about us much, and 2) that he knows I'm a pastor and that he knows much about God.  It was almost as if he was trying to get my approval.  Now I'm glad he knows much about God (well, that really depends on what he knows) but I hope he will know that we love him regardless of what he knows.  He already has our approval.
