In 2 short years....

He had to

*Leave EVERYTHING he knew behind

*Get a whole new family for the 3rd time in his short life.

*Went through the culture shock of a completely new place.

*Learn to trust people to take care of him AGAIN

The list is endless to what our sweet boy has done in the last 2 yrs.  He has accepted a family and is learning his role in it everyday.  He goes on full blast from the minute he wakes up until his falls into bed at night.  He still has some behaviors that are left over from where he was, but he is learning to let go and let others have control and believe that it will be ok.  He has learned to button his own "handsome" shirts for church.  He dresses himself every morning, usually before we ever see him for the day.  He loves his school and they REALLY love him.  He fights with his sisters but can't stand to be away from them.  He is all boy and is so crazy loved in this family we can't believe we got so lucky.  He is loving and kind and we thank God everyday for allowing us the pleasure to be his family.

Happy Family Day Kevin...we love you to China and back....a million times

happy family day! a perfect fit!

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
