 Madison's 16th birthday was a couple of weeks ago and this month has been one of the busiest!
 Sorry it has been so long since I've blogged!  There has been lots going on!

Coming into a family is not always easy and having a new sibling come in is not easy either.  It is a transition for everyone in the family.  Good news, all my kids are learning to adjust well! 

I am very proud of the seven that were here before Andrew.  Even when it's tough, they handle it with grace.  They are excellent representations of Christ!

Andrew is learning new things every day, even after being here eight months. His English is improving. He's slowly learning to trust. He is working on being respectful to adults and siblings (not always easy). He is working on writing his story from his very first memory.  I can't wait to read it!

It is a slow process for him, which he would like to move a lot faster! He does not have patience, but good things come to those who wait.  He thinks eight months home will erase 16 and a half years.  No, it takes time to heal the wounds and hurt, and this mama has the time and the patience.  I'm not going anywhere! I love my son, Andrew!
