It’s been a long time in coming, but our baby has arrived! He’s not as much of a baby any more, he was 3mos old when we started and is 22mos old now, but he’s still our baby. He’s small for his age and even for a child with Down Syndrome, but he has come along remarkably well within the last four months since he was put into a different foster home. He has blossomed with the love of his foster family and we have even seen great improvement in the two weeks since we first got him and the one week we’ve been home.
Our trip to Guatemala was uneventful (thankfully) and we are now back with our family. Jonathan has been surrounded with love and affection. He sleeps well, eats well and is a very happy content child. We are blessed beyond words! His older brothers and sister think he is the most wonderful baby ever.
We are looking forward to adding Anh (Anah) to our family within a few months. She is on the RR site, she is 10 and is in Vietnam. I pray for all the children who get adopted, but mostly for all who don’t. I would just like to say to any who are considering adopting a child/children with DS, walk out in faith, the Lord will provide if it is He who sends you forth.
