Week Seven was wonderful. Christmas and family time. Some of our favorite surprises where TOM's shoes for Eliza and booties for me, knowing that two other people would also be receiving new shoes. Yes, we had soccer - I am seeing a pattern. We were all thinking that the next year would hold a even more wonderful gift....a new member(s) to the family.
Andrew left for Florida yesterday with one of his best friends-Robby (the handsome young man in the picture with Eliza). I love that kid. If he looks familiar it is because he and his sister found Cell Phones for Soldiers. There are so many amazing kids out there.... I already miss the energy that Andrew brings to the family. When he is around, the house is filled with big 16/17 year old, cleats galore, Axe (to disguise the sweat), and loud rough housing. Needless to say, it is quiet and fresh smelling. What am I going to do when he is at college?
We have been doing a lot of thinking and praying. We are thinking about lifting the infant preference on our adoption preference. We have been doing a lot of soul searching. There seems to be a long list of people waiting for a baby and a long list of children waiting for families....The only thing holding us back at this point is the headache to change our documents, and a small amount of fear about attaching. Any insight? Post or email me. We are open to learning.
