We are so thankful to God for allowing us to be this treasures mama and papa.

The journey has been crazy at times.
It's been overwhelming at times. 
It's been very hard at times.

But it's the BEST, MOST REWARDING crazy, overwhelming, very hard time, and we are so in awe of God's blessing to this family.

We will never understand everything we saw, heard, and felt while in the confines of this boys world that he had survived in.

And we will never, ever, forget those left behind.

So on this "one month home" day of joy and thanksgiving for our family, I can't help but be taken back to the others. Please scroll down and look at these kiddos. They are not the ones whose faces I see daily, but they are none the less just as important. They have all already been TRANSFERRED. They are now in the "land of the lost boys and girls."  These are only the kids with down syndrome from Reece's Rainbow who have already been transferred to the mental institution from their baby houses. There are many more with other special needs.

"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12


  1. We have been so blessed by this precious, smart, little boy, Gabe. He wakes up with a smile on his face & goes to bed with a smile. How can people not see the need to get these children out of such a place where love, nuturing & being part of a "forever home" with a Mama & Papa to care for them.

  2. I saw your family on RR, and saw that you were bringing (or ad just brought) your child home. I am so happy to see you that you have been able to bring your child home!!!

    I am just starting a RR journey myself.
