One year anniversary

  1. dillon-on-jade-
  2. It was one year ago today that Dillon came into our life. A scared little boy who was meeting his new family. A new Mom and Dad and a brother and sister.
    It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride but now after a year we have all settled down and can't imagine life without each other.
    He has improved greatly in his grades (especially his reading) and is honing his social skills.
    He has learned to take a joke and learned to tease and be teased without taking it personally.
    We love him so much. I would recommend to anyone with room in their heart who is thinking of having another child to consider adopting a kid who is already in need of a family.
    There is nothing that love can't conquer.
    -Russell

    Congratulations!!

    We always go out the first week of December to celebrate the boys' adoption day, Dec 8. It is amazing how these kids turn around in homes where they are loved and feel secure. Our boys have made tremendous strides the past 7 years. We are so proud of them too!!
