I think this picture says it all :o)
(Help me Tom! :o) pictures please!)
Jacob is on the far right. He is leaning his head on Gabriel. He is accepting Tom and Gabriel more each day.
(see those tiny size 6 shoes on Moses' feet? Gabe has the size 10 pair, I had put the photo of the shoes here- http://theroaddownhome.blogspot.com/2012/05/we-wont-give-up-until-they-are-home.html
This picture was taken Thurs. morning before the clinic. He also leaned on Tom in April. It takes him a long time to warm up. He really is afraid. He has been wounded. Each time I think about it I cry for him. We need to be patient and wait for him to choose to respond to us.
Gabe is looking out the window watching the birds in Sofia. We are nature lovers and bird watching is something we enjoy alot!
As I mentioned before, there are so many mysteries about Jacob. While in the hotel he was holding his urine and BMs. Poor Tom didn't mention this to me. He was worrying about Jacob not eating. He also thought why would he mess diapers if he wasn't eating or drinking.
So yesterday Jacob started to cry. They thought his tummy hurt. And then he messed his diaper. Gabe went to change him and he had a "blowout" as the diaper was opened- onto Gabe, the carpet, and the bed. (poor Gabe, poor Jacob) They cleaned it up and a while later he wet his diaper.
So I'm thinking maybe he was on a potty schedule. we've all seen the pictures on Yout*ube. Little boys on potty bowls. Poor baby, no wonder he's upset. None of "us" makes sense to him. He can't even tell us what "he" wants, or what he knows. I've never felt so happy and sad at the same time.
Gabriel and Tom are LOVING Jacob unconditionally. He is responding!
Another adoptive mom in BG saw and met Tom at the clinic. She shared a few baby food items she had brought over to help Jacob. (Thank You Nancy! (((HUGS)))
Thank You and God Bless you ALL for your prayers!!
We LOVE you!!
