How is Issac doing?



Many people have asked me how Issac is doing. Well he still struggles some at bedtime with tears and fears. Either James (my oldest son) or I will hold his hand as he falls asleep. Some times he will stroke my face and hug me and this seems to comfort him. He is all smiles most of the day and will try new foods and wants to eat whatever anyone else is eating. He, Brian and I still feel slightly groggy at wierd times due to remmants of jet lag. He seemed to enjoy the family get togethers and his welcome home party last week. Grace seems to be regressing with his appearance but hopefully this will be shortlived. He just fits! A pretty simple statement but it works.

Home one week!!!!!!!!!




This week has been a week of many firsts for Issac and us as united family. It is such a blessing to have all my children under one roof!!!!!! Enjoy the pictures of his first extended family get together and his welcome home party!!!!!

Issac's first dinner out in the US





We had 4 children believe it or not spending the night with friends and family so we took advantage of a smaller group and went out for dinner. I think Issac liked it! Check out his ice cream eating :)
