31 days ago....

We went from this.....
.......to this everyday

How we love this funny boy. He is learning so many new things everyday. He has gone from confused to confident, baffled to bold, and from hurting to healing. He opens up to us more everyday. He loves to chase and be chased by his sisters. He is understanding what it is like to be part of a family. The good things and the bad things....sharing..oooo bad. He has learned where to come for comfort and guidance. He still doesn't like strangers....good indication of bonding. He shows us all his best everyday. He is truly a boy of nature. He loves the sun on his face and wind to blow dandilion seeds everywhere. He doesn't like dirty hands....but loves to play in the dirt. He is learning about the trampoline and scaring his mother on a daily basis. Did I mention he is the best eater in the house?? He loves vegetables and protein in any form. I am hoping he will teach his sibling to eat so well. He is up for any new food we give him.

How wonderous is God's love for us that he would chose to bless us with him. We will continue to love and nourish him as long as we live. We will gladly lay down our lives for this precious son that has been bestowed to us. Thank you father for your beautiful gift.

Yeah!! Can you believe it's been a month already? We miss your little Kevin's sweet cheeks so much! (And we misss you and Duane, too, of course!!). I remember well that moment when we met our kiddos for the first time. What a memory that day is! We're so glad to hear that you're doing well and Kevin's adjusting quickly to his new home. Come on over to our blog when you have a chance cause you've been tagged!

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
