Amazing! He is just beautiful. Wishing so much that I could go back 14 years and take such awesome pics of my son. Something tells me he wouldn't be too thrilled to take those photos now. lol ;-) Sadler was meant to be in your family. Sorry that it took so long for you to get the notice that he is finally yours. SWEET NEWS though! =)
