Cheaper by the dozen??
The Drs and nurses ask the same questions.
Is he adopted? Where is he from? Why did you adopt him? Have you adopted before?
Tom loves to tell about the boys! LOL!!
I like to be brief and factual. Make a point! I tell their story to encourage anyone to adopt or donate to the adoption of a little special needs orphan boy! Then I try not to say much because my point was made. These boys need families!
Tom talks....a lot :o) Bless his heart!
He was talking faster than he was thinking when he was telling the Drs and nurses how we adopted 2 first and then three. He was telling them that the expense was less if adopting more than one.
He told them "It's cheaper by the dozen!" HA!!
Oh my crazy husband!
All the Drs and nurses burst into laughter after he said that!
But saving money is not why we adopted 2 and then 3 precious boys. In 2 1/2 years!
It was time!
We are getting older quickly! I hate how fast each day zips by. Tom was 56 when we started, he'll be 59 this year. I was 53, and I'm 56 this year. We wanted to do this before we turned 60! Everything gets harder as you age. Our energy levels are lower. We tire more easily.
BUT! Our parenting skills improve daily, we can't waste what we've learned! Wisdom comes with living. Life is not about retiring from the mission here. Spreading God's LOVE is a job to do until God takes us home!
This is how we do it!
Then Noah, Mosie and Jacob came home-
it changed to a whole dresser for 5 boys. A few more boxes of diapers stacked up................
I thank God for these little blessings all day long.
But they are not cheaper by the dozen! LOL!! And the five I have are more than enough to fill my heart to overflowing.
We got them home just in time!
God is good!
Get the word out with us please!
Little boys are dying, they need us! They need to come home!
