Wednesday, June 24 - Ezekiel Ze You!

This will be quick because we have a lot going on, but I wanted to post a few photos of Ezekiel!  They called him "You You" (pronounced Yo Yo) at the orphanage, so we've been kind of calling him that since it's what he's used to.  He seems to be doing pretty well so far, but we'll see how the next few days go.  TongJie has been great, but it's definitely going to be a big change for him to no longer be the only one. 

Ezekiel has albinism, which means he is albino and lacking the pigment in his skin, eyes, and hair.  That's why he has blond hair.  The orphanage caregivers who brought him told us that they usually keep the children's hair short, but they have been keeping ZeYou's hair long because they want him to look like a foreigner.  I'm posting a few pictures and hopefully will post more soon.  He's super cute!  He is not really walking yet, but crawls a lot and can pull himself up.  He is 16 months old.  Tomorrow we have a long day - we do all the important adoption paperwork at the civil affairs office, and then travel to Liaocheng to apply for his passport and perhaps get a chance to see the orphanage.  It will be about 8:30-5:00 to do all of that stuff Cindy says.


  1. How wonderful to see him in your arms! Congratulations, dear family!

  2. We're loving following your blog like last time--all this took us by surprise. Guess we're "out of the loop" since we've missed church by being at the lake so much. Dick dropped off a small check at the church--want to be a part of your puzzle! Our prayers will continue for your health and safety. Welcome, YoYo!
