Can it be?

(quick post here because I am just shaking over the fact that I think it is our Benjamin and I am dog tired from packing all day long...)

After what seems like hours of searching the internet for some updated photos of our Benjamin ~ I think ~ I finally found some video of him. It was taken back in August 2008 and the crazy thing about this video is that I HAVE SEEN IT BEFORE and have commented on the little boy that ~ I think ~ might be our Benjamin. If it is him...how crazy is that! OK...now here is where I need your help. Our Benjamin is at time frame 1:40 - for about 10 seconds and again at time frame 2:30 for a few more. Oh you must check it out and let me know what you all think...

Can it truly be our sweet little Benjamin?

Is it???!!!! I watched the entire video & sobbed. My daughter may have only stayed in Luoyang for a brief time, but it was where she was born. i wonder, wonder, if her first Mom passes by the orphanage & wonders if she is still there - if she is even still alive? I am thrilled to see the inside of this SWI, I think it looks good - as good as an orphanage can look that is. I think that Benjamin is being taken care of and that makes my day.

Praying these orphans are all on their way home....

Oh... I remember the days of trying to find updated pictures of Faith. It was draining to say the least. I longed to see her, to hold her!!! I would spend hours on the computer looking for her!! I thought I came pretty close one time.. & even became very close friends with the parents of someone who we "thought" was Faith's foster sister, but it wasn't.
I did form some very special bonds & friendships with people, that were true Blessings to our family.
I couldn't tell if it was him or not.. but he sure was a Cutie just like your little man! ;)

I saw this video before the we traveled at the same time as this family and met them in Guangzhou. Ithink that looks like your Benjamin. This video makes me want to go back so bad!

Oh my. So hard to tell!!! He is such a cute baby and there is a resemblance. But there are so many kids in the room. Ugh. Maybe somehow you will find other photos of him at that time and you'll find out for sure.

I sure hope so! A friend of mine took that footage and the little one laying in blue next crib over is my son I think. It's so hard to know for sure but I hope you're able to get there soon. I still see all of those beautiful faces everyday... Many referrals from Luoyang recently and many of the little ones in the footage have found their families!
