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. 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. I can't help it, I love those beautiful babies.
