Just for my children

I have decided to make this blog just a scrapbook for the children. So....I have turned off the comments so that I don't become distracted...not there were very many...it just makes me feel better.

We really do have 3 of the best kids around.  We have been struggling so much with Kevin's anxiety lately.  He doesn't seem to ever relax and enjoy his life. He must hear the schedule several times a day, even though our schedule really never changes. It can become such a heavy burden,I try to remain sensitive to his need to not deviate from routine. He may never be one of those "go with the flow" guys, just not in his dna. He loves his daddy like no other. He is Claires shadow and best friend.

Claire continues to be a little princess.  She comes home from school everyday to put on a costume of some kind and of course, jewelry. She has such a tender heart and is the first one to come comfort when someone is hurting or sad.  She is finding her way along the friendship route. She makes friends so easily but doesn't want to hurt anyones feelings, and that sometimes can make trouble. I believe the Lord has wonderful things for this precious one.

Hannah remains my heart. She is the one who made me a mother. She is so much of me it hurts sometimes. I know the road will be long and hard for her because of some of my traits that she inherited. She amazes me with her strength and grace.  She has such a great heart for God and love for the less fortunate.

I love them so much and HATE the days that don't show that. I am so blessed that the sweet Lord in all of his glorious wisdom, has given me the opportunity to parent these wonderful creatures.

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
