She posted: “Missing my little boy so much while I film on location in Vancouver, but I have so much peace in my heart knowing that this time when I come back, he won’t be my foster son, he’ll be my soon to be adopted son. Yes. We are officially on the road to adoption. I have loved every single moment over the last two years with this little man. I’ve taught him to roll over and crawl, how to walk and run. How to sleep in a big boy bed. How to talk and always say please and thank you. We’ve had fun exploring parks and looking at real life choo choo trains. He has given me more laughter in two long and tearful years than I have had in my lifetime. And when I come home, I’m taking this kiddo to Disneyland. One more week munchkin. Momma loves you.”
