Oh, he's SO CUTE.......I just Praised God this Christmas for the miracle of our new son and the fact that we have 6 little LOVES that make Christmas completely MAGICAL..... CAUSE 3 LITTLE BOYS:AND, 3 LITTLE GIRLS:EQUALS.... ONE VERY HAPPY family this year.....
We are indeed SO BLESSED!!!!!!

A Year Ago Today...

A year ago today, I walked into a remote orphanage in Ethiopia and saw my son for the first time.... He sat starving at only 7 lbs., covered in waste and flies, unable to smile, and in need of a life saving surgery to survive....I painfully left him there and promised I would return for him.....I prayed every day that he would SURVIVE until i could return to bring him home....One YEAR LATER exactly TODAY... He weighed 25 lbs at his Dr. appt this morning, he's a healthy, active post op toddler boy who has NOW been home over 7 months....And, our Cranio Surgeon says he doesn't have to see us back for 1 year!!!! yayyyyyyy!! His surgeries have been a success and we are celebrating here today for this LITTLE MIRACLE that i met one year ago TODAY!!! We love you more than words could ever express Wes Paulos!! I can't imagine my world with out YOU IN IT!!!! You bring me pure happiness each and every day!! Happy 1 year Meetcha Day!! :) And, Happy Monday to you all, kj
