Finally fri.

This week Hannah sang in her 5th grade program for the PTA. They sang folk songs, only 4, it was very sweet. Claire did not like all the attention that the children wanted to give her. She is still timid in crowds. I wish I could have video taped Hannah's performance, she was the only child that was bouncing and patting her leg to the music. She was really having a good time even at a PTA meeting.

We are beginning to get some fall weather here and we are READY. It was 85 degress last mon. I am ready for a high of 50. We are ready to break in the fire place for this yr. Roasting marshmellows and all that fall/winter activies. It will be great to have Claire here for the holidays, especially since we thought she would be her LAST holiday season. She is such a sweet and loving child. She is so smart. Just this week she learned the parts of her face. She won't speak them, but she will point to them if you ask her.

My sister didn't get to come this weekend, sick children. I was very sad, as she hasn't seen her new niece in person. We definatley have more plans in the works to have her here before Thanksgiving. Wish us luck.

Went to the park and the swings are still a no-go. She does fine in the shopping cart, high chair, and stroller. No swing. Maybe later, she has done so much in just the short month she has been here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
