But what is worth it, is to say that both Kai & Eli are transitioning very well. In fact we are amazed at how well they are doing. Not to say we have not had some rough or difficult spots, but over all we are so blessed!
Instead of trying to tell everything that has happened in a week, I will just post a bunch of pics for all to enjoy. And say, if you are on Facebook, friend me... Cuz I take pics and can post to fb from my phone a lot faster, and time is a coveted commodity for me right now. :)
|Eli's first night in HIS bed, and that's Abby our 8 yr old Boston|
and he has begged to sleep with a dog every night since. :)
|Kai's first night in HIS bed, in his room, and that's Jean-Luc another Boston at his feet, |
who now sleeps in a crate in Kai's room every night.

and found them playing Legos with 6 month old Dallas hanging out with them.
Love my kids and Bostons!
Now gotta run off to a Christmas play at church. I will try to update more often. But in case I miss you, Merry Christmas and remember who and what this season is really about...
Oh, real quick, that reminds me:
At breakfast this morning, I was teaching the boys Christmas is about giving, because God gave us His Son Jesus. I was using my translator app. After leaning on me, Eli picked up my phone, pressed the speak button & said "I love you" in English & smiled...
Awe, my heart melted and reminded me this is why we sacrificed and worked so hard to go across the globe to bring two strangers home and make them family. I love my new sons!
