Laugh, cry, LOVE!

I am biased.
I LOVE Bulgaria. The people there are wonderful. It's a beautiful Country with a History that makes us wish we too were Bulgarian.
Our hearts are there with our boy's birth families.
God has truly blessed us with FIVE of the most precious blessing/boys; all from Bulgaria.
The boys have been a part of our lives 4 years now.
We do not take the precious gift of my boys lightly.
We cherish them with great JOY.
That is why I cry.
Because these 2 boys, Tanner above and Tyler below, have large grants on Reece's Rainbow. And yet neither has been adopted.

These 2 precious boys would bless whomever brought them home. Please isn't there anyone who could be their mamma and pappa?
I haven't been able to even think of writing about the JOY in our lives here, while these boys continue to wait.
My heart aches for them.
It has worn heavily on us.
Julius and Mercy heading upstairs to get ready for bed. Both 7 years old/ Julius older by 3 months.
(MA in the background :o)
Julius always the goofy face! :o) Always ready for a hug- with a little mischief. 

 Kitty helping Noah up the steps, Julius watching.
Look at that little belly on Noah!  Such a good eater! At 11 1/2 he's maturing more physically. Almost into size 7!

Julius finding the toys he hides just for himself! They go to Moses' train, but not if Julius gets them first! He's fast so he always gets to them first!

 Mosie " mowing the lawn" with his lawn mower. Mosie loves to push things. He was always pushing the little tykes plastic rocking chair everywhere!! Crashing into walls, rolling up rugs! Until we found him the talking lawn mower!
Can you believe this is the same boy on the top right of my blog?
Next month month he turns 10!!

 Pauly (7) and Mosie sharing a toy. Pauly taps his teeth with toys. His autism causes him to have repetitive behaviors. Tapping his teeth helps him calm himself when he's stressed. It's hard for him to relax. We teach him to try other things to relax. So far he has rejected the OTs suggestions.

Jacob the "contrarian" as Dad likes to call him! When we smile he frowns. When we all goof around he avoids us!! He too will be 10 soon. Growing like a weed, he too is almost in size 7. Such a little man!

Isaiah (my photographer) can get Jacob to smile. Jacob adores big brother Isaiah- when he feels like it! It's always worth the wait to see this angelic face!

Samson...........not from Bulgaria, but just as darn cute! LOL! Creating his lego artworks. He doesn't like being interrupted! And don't even dare try to show him "how" to use his legos! He doesn't like to create with others!! 

 Precious Pauly says no pictures please Isaiah.

Miss Mercy and her popcorn poppers. One in each hand in case brothers want one! You can tell if she's sad, happy or mad by how hard or soft she presses the popper. 
The pink leotard over her jammy is not a fashion statement, it is a diaper digging deterrent. ;o) 

We would add Tanner and Tyler to our family in a millisecond. Our hearts ache for them. As we share our JOY we cry at their loss.
Please help us find them a home/homes.

We just needed to get that out before we share our JOY in 2015.
Thank You for reading!!  


  1. I just love to read about your family. There seems to be so much love and understanding. I also loved adopting from Bulgaria.

  2. Praying that Tanner and Tyler are found by thier forever families. Love the pictures you shared of your children. They have grown so much!!!! since they came home. God is so good. I am praying for you always. Blessings!

  3. LOVE YOUR FAMILY SO MUCH! There was a song that was popular (well in our family when Jimmy was little) called the Opposite Man. It's the first thing I thought of when I read about Jacob. We used to say that was Jimmy and we'd sing it all the time. LOL


I love comments :o) so please be kind! (((HUG)))
