Mike and Theresa Grimes met in a tiny college town in Emmitsburg Md. We have 8 wonderful sons ranging from 28-8 years old. While there is never a dull moment at our home we know we have lots of love to share. People keep telling us “your plate is full” our answer is “We have a lot of room in our hearts”.

Both Mike and Theresa always wanted a daughter and are thrilled to be getting her through the blessing of adoption.

We are so happy to have found Reeces Rainbow and are thankful for all of the support from this amazing community.

“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for forgotten by everybody, I think that is much greater poverty than the person that has nothing to eat.”
– Mother Teresa

We arrived in Taiwan on Saturday January 26th at 8:00 p.m. and the next morning we were off for just a visit with our daughter and we were all comfortable and fell immediately in love so we were able to bring her back to the hotel that afternoon where we played and became more comfortable. She immediately bonded to Daddy, she wouldn’t leave his arms…so precious! He couldn’t leave her sight. We respected that so I would play with her while she was on Daddy’s lap!  We had a wonderful trip. The people of Taiwan are very kind and generous. Abigail enjoyed going out to shops and walking around Taipei, greeting visitors who wanted to talk with her.

 

We left Taiwan Thursday at 2:00 pm (lost a day in between) and arrived back in Rochester, New York Thursday evening Jan 31st at 11:45. There we were greeted by several family members and friends.  In the car ride home, Abigail grasped her brother and sister’s fingers and wouldn’t let them go…they wouldn’t let her go either!

She has adjusted very well, she is on a regular eating, sleeping and playing schedule. It is like she has been a part of our family forever!  She is talking in English and using sign language already! She will begin receiving early intervention services in March! What a great country we live in. God has truly blessed us beyond every blessing! We are so thankful for safe travel, friends, family and of course to God for all he has provided us.

Simon Daniel Kulp (Dang Da Nian) has been home with us since Nov 28th 2007!  Our quiet home of 2, has now been transformed into a family of 3 with glorious shrieks, giggles and daddy/son wrestling matches!  He is now 3 1/2 years old.  We have absolutely loved our first 8 months with our new son who has taught us about a completely new kind of love that we have never felt before!  Our family has been kept hopping, between PT, OT, Speech Therapy, Special Ed, an unexpected hernia repair, (along with some other unexpected “boy part surgery”) and of course playing, swimming and napping!!!  We are so pleased with how our precious boy has progressed and grown, grown, grown.  It’s amazing what some vitamins, weight-bearing, moisturizing and scrubbing up can do for a boy!  In December he couldn’t stand on his own, now he is practically running laps around me.  He is a sign language whiz thanks to Signing Times videos, and his vocabulary is s-l-o-w-l-y expanding.  You should have heard him say Grandpa for the first time yesterday!  We are so thankful to God, for the smooth transition Simon made into our life.  We can hardly remember life without him!
