Julius, a boy who happens to have DS
I could carry both boys together then!
One of Julius' first surgeries helped him have more testosterone/hormone in his body. This really made a big difference in his growth. Prior to this surgery, his first Urologist had frightened us with the thought that Julius might be a girl! We knew he was not! After extensive blood work it was confirmed, he is a boy! :o) A beautiful boy!
My LOVE my boy Julius!! He has grown into a healthy happy guy.
Yes, he still struggles with behaviors that he had used to survive over 4 years without a mommy and daddy.
Yes, he was the most resistant to my LOVE. For months he responded to me as the "mean orphanage lady"!! ouch!
He really thought that he and dad could live very happily without me! Thank goodness dad did not agree!
I am ashamed to admit I lost patience with him more than once as he "fought" me. He blessed me with his forgiveness. And I worked hard not to lose my patience with him. The reward~ he's momma's boy! Of course dad still ranks high in his world too! But he LOVES his mamma!
Phew- back now- thank goodness Noah is consoled easily!
As I was saying, my Julius. Wow! Wow! Wow! Is that really my boy? My little Ju-Ju bean as we like to call him! He is so everything I love about having a son! Boys! They are so not girls! LOL!! I love how I try to imagine what he's thinking and it's totally boy stuff! He surprises me every time! I LOVE that about my boys!
And oh yeah! Julius just happens to have Down Syndrome. And I totally LOVE that about him too! Wonderfully created by God!
