Things to remember...

(thanks Mark)

*He comforts Claire when she is upset. That is quite often now that her princess staus has been shaken.

*He really wants to make sure she is ok before proceeding with play.

*He is really beginning to tolerate the dogs. Still no barking is allowed, but they may come in the house.

*He still can't get enough of his biggest sister. Vice versa

*He had fried chicken and liked it. Ate the whole leg, and liked the cole slaw as well.

*He is converting to American time faster than we thought. I believe we will change in 2 more days. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*He has begun to let us rock him at night. He still wants to fall alseep in his bed, but he is letting us comfort him more.

*He is a perfect fit for our family

Yay! So glad things are going well!
Please send me your ideas for the sharing/sibling rivalry stuff. Eden is having a hard time and I can use all the ideas I can get :).

Hi Shelley!
The sibling stuff was quite UGLY at our house in the beginning. SO JEALOUS. It's not like bringing home a bitty baby who sleeps 16 hours a day. We brought home real, opinionated, stubborn little people who immediately entered the reigning siblings space and territory and parent's hearts and claimed possessions etc.
It's rough. It's a lot for them to wrap themselves around and accept. It does get better. We still have our moments.
Kevin looks wonderful!!!

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
