Mystery Baby

Since my husband and Joe are out for the evening and the little ones are asleep and it's not like I have six loads of laundry to fold, a kitchen to clean, or a bajillion Christmas things to do, I have devised a little game for you to play. OK, it probably won't be fun because there's only one or two people who will know the answer, but here goes:

Who is this baby???
Hint: He is sleeping on our couch.

No, no, it's not Moses! But he did sleep in a basket.
Here's another look. The other baby is Kiki. A very *young* Kiki. Does that help?
Nope, it's not Daniel.
Here they are again, side by side. He sure is a little guy, isn't he?
Give up? Well, it's a little known fact that last November a couple of days before we were given the call about Joe and Daniel, we accepted placement of another newborn little boy, Baby Z. He was 8 days old and came straight from the hospital. The day after he arrived, our agency called and offered us Joe and Dan because we were open to a sibling group of their age range and they were much more likely to be adopted (at that time we thought we would be losing Kiki in a couple of weeks). Baby Z. spent one night and one day with us and was then whisked away to another foster home. We felt a little sad, but the boys sounded like a better fit for us.
We still think about you, Baby Z., and pray that God is watching over you!
