Our sweet boy

Loving the camera


No more photos please

See what I mean.....read below

Standing in the tub+slick boy= black eye. POOR BABY

We continue to adjust to daily life. We are learning to share more each day...but it remains a work in progress. You may notice that the 2 young ones are together alot in pics....that is only to be able to see what the other one is getting/or has. They don't get THAT one past me. I see more survivor actions from Claire. She has taken to "putting things up so that they are safe" she is hiding things so that only she may get them. You can't believe the places I find toys. She is eating faster....she used to eat really fast. She doesn't want anything left on her plate (that she would normally eat) that Kevin might be able to have. Sometimes it makes me sad to see this old behavior coming out...I wish there were a magic spell (see how much time I spend playing princess and queen????) to help her understand that there will always be enough THINGS and LOVE to take care of everyone.
Hannah remains in the spotlight with Kevin. She is a teen so she is hot and cold. He seems ok with that as well. I am so proud of my girls for allowing their hearts to be open to this precious boy sent from God.

sounds like my house. sha sha was NOT adopted but she has started the same behavior with her things...she wants everything up high so Yao Yao can't get them. Perhaps it is not survival after all but pure girl:)

email your phone number...i would love to chat sometime soon!

Lily saw Kevin's pictures and said " Aww Foo, I love it!". She also said that he used to give her ching ching and pointed to her cheek. He used to give her kisses on the cheek.
Emily did the same thing as Claire as far as putting the toys up out of Lily's reach. Nick is a lot like Hannah hot and cold. I know he loves her because of there playful interactions, but she bugs him too. He's a teen also. Sounds a lot like our house.

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! And even thought I have my good and bad days, he will always be one of my "fave 5" HAHA!


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
