My baby boy! I imagine that he is saying OHHHH! Isn't he the cutest little boy you have ever seen!! Got these pictures this morning!!! I will share some more later!! THANK YOU to the best woman in the world for sending us pictures!!!!!

After I cried and settled my pain in my heart...I sent the pictures on to daddy and grandma!! My mom (grandma who lives up the road) cried too!! And she most often is not emotional like me! :)

This is my son, my little boy who is waiting (seems like FOREVER, I know) for us to come!! Soon my son I will be able to wrap my arms around you and kiss your little cheeks, the best of all tell you that you have a family that loves you very much!!! Thank you God for this blessing!!

Thank You!!!...

I can NOT say THANK YOU loud enough to so many people that have helped us along the way to bring our son home!! It is exciting...I was driving the other day and thought about the old saying about how it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it is taking a village to bring our son home. Just know you all are thought about and prayed about a lot!!

Today we got more donations..not through Chip-in which brings our total to $505.00 Praise God!!! I am so excited and so thankful!! We continue to pray and be thankful for EVERYTHING!!

Stay tuned..more topics to come and a continuation of THANK YOU!!

Many Topics to Come...

There are many topics in my head that will be posted soon. Some of the topics will be:

Sacrifice: An act of giving up something of value for the sake of something that is of greater value or importance

Thank you: I think self explanatory :)

Heart: A muscular organ that pumps blood through the body AND A person's feelings or capacity to love or compassion

Patience: The capacity to tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without becoming angry or upset

Stay tuned...they are in my head I just have to write them done...soon I will be posting. We are having a relaxing Sunday. It's quiet the sun is out and I am loved!

My Heart...

My heart is very sore and achy!! This morning Jovan said "doctor make my leg longer" and he showed me with his hands how long it will be. His orthopedic doctor is going to try and put some kind of prosthetic on his shorter leg to make it maybe possible to have him walk upright using a backwards (following behind instead of him pushing) walker. I told him that he would have to use a walker and he sounded so sad..then he asked if he still would need his wheelchair. I said yes...

I died inside!! My son so wants to be like a typical kid! He loves soccer and his special ed teacher called the other day and asked if he could play with his classmates (Jovan is in a regular classroom, but has a special ed tacher for his physical IEP)...I said yes, just take off his glasses. He plays the goalie I think. What do you say to a child who has a forever tough uphill climb to make in life. I know in his head he knows..and lately it is really coming out in many questions.

We always are positive about his situation and his mobility issues. He can do so many things!! So far about the only thing he can't do is bring dishes to the table or clear his plate from the table. I know we can probably figure out something to do for that (I have an idea)...but is it a big deal not to clear his space at the table? I don't think so!

In our home we all take care of the house according to ability!! Chores are a given here! Both Kristina and Jovan have their list. Jovan has recently taken the recycling down the steps to put in the garage. That is a big job and a little scary, but he wants to do it. He has about ten steps to go down to reach the garage door. And it takes him several trips sometimes..but he succeeds and it is awesome!!

My heart does not hurt so much...God is good, thinking about all the positive things he can do and just thanking Him for my son...every single inch of him!! Thank you for listening to this mother's pain...and NO I do NOT feel sorry for him, I just feel bad that I can not "fix" him the way he wants to be! But I think most mother's feel that way when their child has pain on their heart. Enjoy your children...every inch of them!!!
