Julius Believer age 8.
His name comes from Acts 27 and the Roman Centurion who helped the Apostle Paul. We knew we were naming one of our boys "Paul" after my mom's best friend since high school- my "Auntie Lena". (Pauline) Who was Greek. After reading Acts the name Julius seemed to be the answer to what our 2nd son's name would be. And we LOVE his name. Altho he is often more like Julius the monkey! ;o) LOL!
Julius is such a handsome boy! He's very smart too, which often gets him into trouble- like "curiosity killed the cat". ;o)
He was so tiny when he first came. Now he is quite tall for having Down Syndrome and he is "built" slimmer. His legs are not as short as the other boys legs, compared to their torso.
So he can run like the wind! LOL!
He is the 2nd youngest boy of the five, but the tallest.
He has the confidence of knowing he is smart! So he doesn't easily get offended when he's corrected. He often challenges the rules, A LOT!!! Good thing we are crazy about him! LOL!
Moses LOVES to "help". But Julius LOVES to do tasks, to have responsibility. Just tell him to "set the table" and he is in heaven! It may be a little unusual or not complete. But he feels great joy in doing "it"! Each year he can do more and more. He is going to go far if he can learn to stay on task and not let his curiosity get the best of him!
Sometimes he can be mean to his brothers out of boredom. Eventually after being tripped one too many times by Julius, Moses will now go back and hit him!!!
He makes my heart melt! He is a momma's boy through and through. Always kisses and hugs for me! And he LOVES to sit with me doing learning projects. He gives everything we do together his full attention.
All of my boys from Bulgaria are filled with LOVE! Just like the Bulgarians who allowed us to adopt them!
