Today Mae is such a different child than the one I met. She is spunky, loving, smart, a bit of a stinker, and such a sweet child to have around. I adore her!
I was busy with Mae when Nathaniel was brought to us. He went right to Jon because Jon had food. Food was essential to this little guy for his adjustment. We learned pretty quickly that this he was a quite a handful. Nathaniel was also delayed. Even though he was four, he acted like a two year old.
Nathaniel has made tremendous strides over the last two years. He no longer rages and he seems to be acting more appropriate for his age. This little guy picked up the English language incredibly fast and now reads at grade level. He is inquisitive, loving, adventurous, joyful, friendly, talkative, and smart. This energetic boy has taught me to love with my actions and not my feelings; a great lesson to learn. I now love him with all my heart.
I praise God every day for these little lives that He brought into our family. I can't imagine life without them!
