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.

Going Red for Cody

I've had gray hair for a good long while.  I don't mind it much.  I tell the kids that they cause it and I will wear it proudly.  lol 

Tonight on Skype, Cody thought my hair looked "red" like his.  It was the light shining above my head that caused it.  He seemed excited at the prospect that it was like his.  His foster mother and I explained that my hair is brown.  I've alway had a slightly redish brown tint to my hair though.  :)

Cody has never had people "like him".  He is very caught up on his new last name.  He wants to make sure that it is on every card and package.  He is excited about it.  He wanted to make sure that "Dayton" had the same last name.  This is big stuff to a little boy who has been in foster care his whole life!

I decided after the Skype tonight that this "Mama" is going to have a good "red tint" to her hair.  I am going to get my gray hair colored.  I'm not planning to go bright red, but I will hopefully have hair red enough.  :)  My mother is making me an appt at JcPenney for Saturday.  I guess we will see how this turns out!  One thing for sure is that this Mama is mighty excited with anything that makes him feel "the same".  He is definitely one of us and if  "red hair" and "Unroe" make him happy, then that we will make sure to do! 

Yes, I am "Going Red for Cody".  If you see me and I look a little different, then just know that for that sweet boy I would do anything.  Who knows - maybe this will be the beginning of me covering my gray.  Maybe it will restore the "youth" that the process from Dallas has taken from me.  lol 

Please pray that we get the travel approval.  Brent needs to book his flights and give his employer the official "I'll be off next week" paperwork.  I also need to breath a little easier.  I need to KNOW that I will hold him in just one week!
