More fall festivals and fun

Sat we went to Hannah's schools fall festival. It is always nice and small and she likes to see her friends. We then went out to eat and made a day of it. Claire still doesn't like the crowds but she would run around with Hannah a lot. She still doesn't want anyone else to touch her, which makes us feel more secure about her bonding.

She has begun to "sing" when she hears music. No words of course, just beautiful baby gibberish and melody. She will start to sing at the strangest times as well. She can be eating and then break out in song. Below in the pictures you will see her signing for more at the resturant. She is so smart, but yet so willful. It truly keeps me on my toes.

Hannah remains such a joy and great helper. She loves to "mommy" Claire and want to do alot by herself. It just still bothers her that sometimes Claire just wants mommy or daddy. I try to explain that she did that too, but she doesn't believe that she did.

Claire will be going as a ladybug this yr. and Hannah will be going as a witch. We love to visit my mother's neigborhood, as there are not many small children and the folks get a kick out of Hannah, now they will have Claire as well.

Thanks for stopping by

The Itsy Bitsy Spider is a big hit in our house. Mary sings, and Claire Ling does the hand motions. No singing yet (except for the 16 year old witht he bass voice...does that count?)

The picture of Claire signing is sooooo cute!

I MEANT to say, no singing from Claire Ling yet!!


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..

Favorite Poem

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
