"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

Corban has come along way....

Corban has come a long way in a weeks time.  A week ago, I worried that his development was beyond what we had prepared for and wondered if we were going to be able tohow were going to handle all that were likely to endure. A week of hugging on him even when he didn't want hugged.  Touching him even when he didn't want to be touched.  Playing with him when he prefers to play alone seems to have worked wonders. We still have a lot of progress to make, especially with eating, but as I write this I began doing Eskimo kisses (nose to nose rubbing) with him, he giggles, runs away and keeps coming back for more - it melts my heart. God works wonders and I know all these sweet moments will get us through the tough times we will face.

Adoption entails the same unknowns we face when we give birth to children. We pray and hope for a child who is healthy and has no concerns but we know even if they do, we will love and care for them, even through the difficult trials of life.  Thank you God for blessing us with these precious miracles of life. You chose us to be their parents for a reason and for that I am thankful and will love them to pieces.
