"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

Expander progress...

After 7 rounds of expanding for Corban and 6 rounds for Tegan, this is where the expander totals are:

Neck - 102 of 250 cc goal - we have not expanded this one since 2/9/12
Forehead - 85 of 250 cc goal - this one is progressing slowly
Back of head - 172 of 350 cc goal - we made some big process with the last fill, almost half way

Forehead - 52 of 70 cc goal
Left Back - 570 of 750 cc goal
Right Back - 575 of 750 cc goal

Yes, he went from smiling to upset in the time of the snap of a picture.

Corban's are expanding really well and we shouldn't have any issue reaching or exceeding the goal.  We have 3 weeks left till removal surgery, March 19th.  We are uncertain if we will be able to expand Tegan's neck anymore. It will all depend on how quickly the redness fully goes away. We will be expanding Tegan's forehead and back of head every 4-5 days now to help make some progress.
