Adoption Books and Update

It’s been a busy few weeks at our house.  Originally Rich and I had planned to be gone to Italy on vacation now but when that volcano erupted in Iceland and I saw all the stranded passengers on the news, we decided it’s best to wait a while.  We will re-schedule the trip when it works out for Grandma and Grandpa to babysit for us…maybe in the fall!  I was really looking forward to gondola rides, fine Italian foods and wines and just enjoying all the Italy has to offer tourists!  Oh well…

Hannah was recently confirmed in our church which is a milestone in her spiritual walk.  She gave her testimony in front of the entire church…we were very proud of her! The class was a small one this year with only Hannah and 3 boys!

Hannah's confirmation 051 Hannah's confirmation 006  Peter had his first dentist appointment this past week.  He did great and really enjoyed doing what he saw his big brother doing!  He was a brave little man!

I have been talking to Peter lately about being adopted.  He seems to understand (as much as a 3-year old can) that he has another mommy in Guatemala and is interested in talking about how he came to live with us.  I found a book about adoption that is really cute.  He loves this story!  The book is called, “I Wished For You-an Adoption Story” by Marianne Richmond.

Do any of you have any other good adoption books you would recommend?  I’d love to get him a few more!

Mary Merkley…if you read this, could you please email me?  We haven’t been able to get on your blog for months and would love to see pictures of your girls (and boys!) again! Peter always loved seeing M’s pictures!!

My girls always like that Over the Moon book. More so, make your own! Put pictures of pertinent people and events in a scrapbook so the adoption 'story' is really his OWN! My girls have worn theirs to death!!

congrats to hannah and to Peter. Blessings from Above, a book about a little bird that falls out of a nest into the pouch of a kangaroo who is below. the kangaroo had been wanting a baby for a long time. the mama bird asks the kangaroo to care for the baby bird who fell, because moma bird has so many baby birds in the nest to feed and the nest is too small.
