Two China Dolls and a Prince!

This blog chronicles the story of 2 of our adoptions, both older children when they came home. It begins in 2008 and will continue in the hopes we can be of encouragement and information to anyone thinking of older child adoption.

Piano and baseball!

Piano Recital was April 28, 2013.  NingNing has been playing only since January and he memorized his piece.  He was so nervous, but pulled through like a champ!
I didn't notice til later watching the video he was sitting with his legs crossed!

Getting ready to head for 3rd base...May 7, 2013

James was helping Ning's team at their first game.  James has about 13 years experience playing baseball.

Ning had thrown the ball to first base too high..he was waving his hand as if to wave that throw away!

First time up to bat in a baseball game....EVER!

A Poem For Our Son

To encourage not only ourselves, but hopefully others experiencing struggles with their children, these words came to me.

Our love stands strong,
        in the face of your tears.

Our love stands strong,
       in the emergence of your fears.

Our love won't end,
       when you run from it.

Our love won't end,
      when your built-up dreams plummet.

Our love will always be,
      waiting for when you're ready.

Our love will always be,
      strong and steady.
