those beautiful babies

Today I picked up the 4 kids we are trying to adopt. We get them for a long week end. I love having them here. How someone could abuse these babies is way beyond me. They didn't know any better and they still miss their parents. To mess with the mind and body of a child is incomprehensible to me. AJ, the 4 yr. old, says he loves me. I almost cry. He has ADD and is always on the go. The 13 year old asked me how I get him to go to sleep so easy? I just pick him up and whisper in his ears. secret.gif He has to sit still to hear me. Soon he is ready for bed. He just wants love and attention. Getting through to the 13 yr. old is going to be a challenge. I think I am up for it. I pray that I am up for it. Dick tries so hard to be patient with the kids. When he is frustrated he goes into our room and watches TV for a while. I am proud of him for doing this. He loves the little ones so much. Our first granddaughter likes to feed grandpa. She is 10 1/2 months old. He even eats things that she has had in her mouth. I have to look away. We raised 3 girls and 3 nephews and now we are starting all over again. biggrin2.gif I can't help it, I love those beautiful babies.

GOOD MORNING,

 

MY WIFE AND I HAVE 2 ADOPTED GRANDCHILDREN AND WE COULD NOT LOVE THEM MORE. WHAT A BLESSING! OUR SON AND HIS WIFE ARE AWAITING THE ARRIVAL OF THEIR FIRST CHILD FROM SOUTH KOREA. MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW IS ORIGINALLY FROM THERE, IT WAS AN EASY AND OBVIOUS CHOICE.

 

ENJOY THE KIDS. IT'S THE BET GIFT EVER.

I'm another one like you, bring on the babies...just got done watching a 1yr old the other day for my husbands cousin, love 'em...

 

I'm at the teenage stage now in our family, lots of patience and guidance from a distance (12 and 14) so they don't know we're shadowing them seems to keep the peace more. I have to remember that age and trying to make our own ways in a way..

 

God bless you. cloud9.gif an I love you makes it all worth it! restorative

 

My 14 yr old had borderline ADD, we went the Strattera route, more gentle than Adderall, the Adderall upset sleep and took away the desire for lunch, also a growth inhibitor. the spring I took him off of it, he shot up four inches.

 

I try to keep things as routine as possible, it helps him and me, da Flylady.com has lots of good ideas.. Good luck, my husband goes to the garage to bang on the snomobiles when he feels patience is wearing thin. biggrin2.gif

THAT IS ABOUT ONE OF THE SWEETEST THINGS I HAVE EVER READ!!!! IN THE MOVIE/BOOK "MOMMIE DEAREST", JOAN CRAWFORD'S DAUGHTER CHRISTINA WAS MADE TO SAY OVER AND OVER..." ADOPTED CHILDREN ARE THE LUCKIEST IN THE WORLD BECAUSE THEY ARE CHOSEN".

 

THIS IS SO TRUE. TO TAKE ANOTHER PERSON'S BIOLOGICAL CHILD AND LOVE HIM/HER, TAKES A SPECIAL KIND OF LOVE LIKE NO OTHER. THE BEAUTY OF IT IS WHEN THE CHILD RECOGNIZES AND FEELS THE LOVE AND HAS THEIR OWN SPECIAL WAY OF SHOWING IT. THERE IS NO FEELING QUITE LIKE IT.
