Yesterday Hannah's classs went to the amusement park for their last hoorah!! She came home...remember she is just 10 yrs old...with a monkey that a boy had bought for her!!!!!!!!! This is a boy who comes from a good family and Hannah has kind of "chased" him for the whole yr. So now he pops up with presents 2 days before school lets out. She informed my friend that "my crush got this for me" Oh dear G-d, does it really start this early???? I need some help from all you mothers of teens or tweens, give me comfort that she won't be REALLY interested in boys for about 6 more yrs. My heart hurts....

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
