Yes, we are still here

A few times every week I think to myself "I really need to update the blog"...and then the kids wake up...and life happens...

Even now I don't have a lot of time to write but I wanted to at least share some pictures and videos with you so you could see just how amazing the boys are doing!!!!  I'll take being a bad blogger over a being a bad mother...I am sure you all understand :-)









We have been doing so well!  It's crazy because we have had some of the hardest and darkest times of adjustments since I last wrote but we have also seen some of the biggest break-throughs too!

I think the videos of the boys speak for themselves:

I mean can you stand all that cuteness?  And the progress...amazing, right?!?!

Thank you for your continued prayers and for being so patient waiting for updates :-)

  3. Wow, they are amazing. Bohdan speaks so well, and Daniel getting stronger and stronger! When I saw him fix the crayon properly in the box, I was amazed! He is very smart, they both are. Thank you for taking the time to update us on their wonderful progress.

  5. PS: I laughed out loud when Daniel turned the crayon right-side-up. To think of all the things that were said about him/his diagnosis before he came home! God loves to surprise us :)

  13. Dear Jamie,
    Thank you for the wonderful update! I have no children of my own (and no brothers or sisters or husband,so no nieces/nephews), and we have a stressful situation here with my Mom's health, so, for me, the voices and joys of your little ones are like a delightful spring splash! Say a prayer for us.

  25. Hi Jamie! I am a long time reader of your blog , but have never commented before! I am in complete awe at how amazing the boys are in your videos! What a long way they have come. I teach developmentally delayed students ( up in Canada)and know how much hard work goes into the children's achievements. Congratulations to you all!
