We are so glad to be able to finally sit down to give you an update. We can’t be more grateful for all those prayers and questions we are constantly getting about our adoption. Your interest and support is so encouraging! Here are the links to our previous updates for those of you who are new to our journey: Part 1, 2, 3, 4.
|As always we will entertain you along with our pictures! Join us as we dream of how our little daughter would look like monkeying around with our family!!|
There will be more a few more technical words on this update than the usual. We hope this helps you understand where we are at in our process. We also hope this is helpful to those of you asking as you are starting to ponder about adoption as a choice to expand your own family in the future. This is the best compliment and encouragement that we can get: Inspiring some of you to embark on this wonderful journey yourselves. However we also love to see how everybody can be involved to help these children in so many different ways. We are so grateful for all of you!
|And would love to make her very own pancake at the table! I wonder what flavor would be her favorite?|
|I bet she would get a kick of petting this pony along with big brother!|
|And she for sure would dress up to visit the local "Medieval Festival". =)|
|Oh sister, I'm ready to sing along with you in the mornings while mum cooks us breakfast!!|
|And have fun making paramount messes!!|
There are dozens of different conditions listed ranging from minor/major heart diseases, limb differences, vision/hearing impairments, digestive conditions, to nervous/developmental, skin, blood or facial conditions like cleft lip and palate among others. I know at first sight this may scare the bejeebers out of some of you! But to keep it real, once you become familiar with all these conditions you become much more at peace with the idea of adopting a special need child. All the medical treatments available now days are making prognosis more and more optimistic and all type of diagnoses much more manageable. Actually learning about this has made us more aware of all the friends we have around who have different type of physical limitations, and can just live perfectly normal and fulfilling lives. Many of these conditions are correctable with surgery and special therapy, so what many of this children need is just that opportunity to become all they were created to be. We so want to be givers of that opportunity! There are SO MANY stories of children that were adopted with what may have seem scary at first sight, but who are thriving and living healthy and fulfilling lives after proper treatment has been provided. And again, we are so excited to be part of one of those stories!
|I bet she'd enjoy helping daddy to practice for his "Bull run"|
|And throwing tomatoes at him just for fun at the "Tomato Festival"!!|
|And beating big brother on a homemade bowling match!|
|Oh, won't she look cute being part of our geeky family? I bet she will be super cute cheering up daddy's robotics team! We want you home Bush girl! The team needs you!|
