About Me

I have adopted 4 children from a specific orphanage in Eastern Europe and I want to see more children redeemed from that orphanage and brought into families. I want to make sure that the children who are still left behind in that place are never forgotten.

I heard Dayton talking to Jose tonight. They were in the sensory room with Julianne. Jose said something about Julianne having it good with them all spoiling her. Dayton said "Jose, being spoiled can be boring". I asked what he meant and if he remembers being "spoiled". He said that he can remember having Denzell push the button for him on the 4wheeler he had when he was 2 years old. We laughed for a minute about how Denzell did spoil him just like they are doing Julianne now.

Jose said that he doesn't know if he was spoiled when he was little or not. He said he just "doesn't remember". I told him that I'm not sure about when he was that age, but that I wish I had gotten to spoil him too. He gave me a big hug. These are the moments that I hate because there is nothing that I can do to turn back the clock and have those early years with them. Jose didn't come to our family until he was 7 1/2 years old. I often think of what an ornery and cute little guy he must have been, what fun they would have had together when they were tiny, and all the years that I didn't get to be with him. I'm so glad that I'm his mommy now though!

Dayton the proceeded to tell me that he doesn't spoil Julianne "as much as he did before". I laughed at him and said that it would be impossible to keep her THAT spoiled. He went on to say that he can't help it because she is so tiny and cute. (I have to agree) He said that he thinks that if we could cover her cute little face then it would help him not to spoil her. roflol

These kids are hysterical! They wouldn't stop spoiling her no matter what! She has them wrapped tight!

  1. I too grieve for lost time, but the good news is that he still isn't too old to spoil like crazy! He is such a great kid. I love that mischievous smile!
