When you have lottsa kids, you get to celebrate lots!
And I love a good party (as if you didn’t know that already).
Yesterday I met a new friend who is soon to adopt her first foster placements.. they are the same age that D & d were when they were first placed with us. And I think that her oldest even has the same smile that our D used to have. Maybe his smile is still the same? I don’t know. He’s changed *so* very much. He used to be pretty fearful. And he was way out of control. Now he’s so big and strong and tough. And he’s so smart. He’s always been a great big brother and he’s been that same great big brother to all of the kids who’ve come and gone through our home. He still gets a little uncomfortable if you’re too mushy. And now he blushes and turns away if you dote on him too much. But, he’s fun to dote on and easy to love. And a lot of fun to play with.
Well, I started this *before* the big day, but my D has been 8 for a couple weeks now. And we’re all still surviving..
Let me round this out with a couple photos before I post.
