Introducing...

Nicolas Andrew Ahuka Klug




To clarify, it's pronounced a-hoe-ca, with a short a and a long o. It means "a giant man," or so we are told. And yes, that is Nicolas without an "h"- he was named by people who spoke French, and consequently used a different spelling. We added a middle/family name, Andrew, this time (instead of a first as we did with Tommy). While we were choosing names we continued to call him Nicolas...and the name grew on us.



Nicolas is eight and a half months old, and was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I resisted the urge to label this post "Our Congolese Cutie." It was hard, but I held back.



We are so excited that this sweet, adorable, cuddly boy has joined our family!


We are SO blessed.

AWESOME! So happy for you guys. He's a super cute little guy! I'm very interested to hear how Tommy adjusts. We tried pretty hard to prepare D for an adopted little bro but when it actually happened he was a bit "off" for a while. We'll pray for all of you guys as you settle in!
