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.

Cody Had His Tonsils Out

Last Thursday, Cody had his tonsils and adnoids removed.  The doctor said that his nose was 80% or more blocked by the adnoids and his tonsils were huge.  He is doing WONDERFUL.  He has very little discomfort and the only probably is keeping him inactive for the two weeks that we are suppose to.  That is a lot of work!!!

Here are some pictures of Cody right before he went back for surgery.  :)  He wasn't scared a bit and he's not shed one tear still!

Isn't he the cutest?!
I think this was right before he chose the kind of homemade ice cream 
that he would be wanting made the next day!
I'll take another one soon, but now I spend all his waking time trying to keep him calm!

Julianne and the Crib Update

Well many of you probably read THIS post, where Julianne was climbing into the crib that was ready for Aleshia (coming home so soon now!).  I thought I'd give you an update.

For a couple weeks after that, we were taking the crib out of her room when we put her into her room at night.  During the day if she started to get into the crib we told her that it was for her sister Aleshia.

When we talk about the 5 kids who are coming home soon, she smiles now.  I think she understands that the crib is for someone else now.

See what you think?

She is so sweet! 
I can't help that she is impossible to resist!  
Don't worry, she didn't stay there long.  
I took her to bed with me!
