Last Post

I know it's been a while but just in case there's anyone out there that is still following this blog, here's what we've been up to lately.
Roman has become an amazing swimmer, he is definitely future swim team material. We are working on strokes right now. Jadon loves swimming too and is able to swim out a few feet on his own now.
We have been trying to stay busy as usual with play dates and swimming, it has been unbearably hot lately so we're spending more time indoors.
Last night Chris pulled out Roman's incredibly loose tooth, gross. I have no stomach for loose teeth, I can't even look at the tooth without gagging but Roman was very proud. The tooth fairy left him $5 bucks!! He's ready to spend it already!;)
Tomorrow we are going to Disney with the boys for the first time for Chris and Jadon's birthday. The boys are so excited and we are too. I can't wait to see their faces when they see Magic Kingdom, Mickey and friends.
So, that's about it. The boys are doing great, it's like they've always been here. We are so blessed to have them.
And so, this is my last post. I am a terrible blogger, especially since I can't figure out how to get pictures off of our camera and on to our computer. I hate posting without pics.:( Anyway, if you have questions or want to stay in touch, please email me anytime. I don't have a Facebook page and I won't in the future but Chris does and he posts regularly so you can see pics of the boys on his page all the time. Thank you for following our story and for supporting us in so many ways.

Nooooo!!!! I know you don't post that often, but I'm sad to see you close this baby down! Have a great time at Disney!!! We love going, and it's a completley different experience to see it through the eyes of your child- you will have a great trip (mind-you that the heat is at least bearable! LOL!)

hi
I have never commented on your blog but I had it saved under my favorites and loved to check how you were all doing. My husband and I are still in the waiting phase and your blog has been such an inspiration of hope and faith. Thanks so much for sharing. I also love your youtube videos of trip1 and trip2. I will look for you guys on facebook.

I hate to see you go, but I completely understand. I too have been tossing around the idea for sometime to stop our blog. I'm so glad the boys are doing well! I hope you all have a wonderful time at Disney! Good luck with everything. If you are ever over my way, please let me know so we can meet up.

Oh I'll really miss you in blog-land, but I completely understand. I'm a horrible blogger now too. It's just close to impossible with a little guy crawling all around trying to unplug everything and fiddle with all the lights and buttons.

Please keep in touch through e-mail!!

Gagh!~ This cannot be your last post!!!!! We will just have to find a computer guru who can help you get your pic's onto this blog if that's what it takes to make you happy! I love reading about your boy's. They are like little ray's of sunshine and sometimes its nice to know somebody else is dealing with the same stuff I am. Pleaaaaaaase don't stop blogging. I check back for new stories all the time here!

Hello!
I am Brazilian, I share the story of you around the net, do not speak a word of English.
First, I saw the videos of you in Russia in You tube, the images speak for themselves, I've cried a lot.
Then I found the blog of you, I read through the traduto of Google.
Congratulations on the love that you have, these boys have earned a home, a family and lots of love, a pity that there are so many children in the world that does not have that opportunity.
Merry Christmas to this beautiful family.

Ah, I showed my son, the baby photo using the vessel in benheiro, mine is 3 years and has not left the diapers.
