6 months

Luke has been with me for 6 months and at home for 5 months. It seems like he has been with us forever and yet it's hard to believe 6 months have already passed.

Our life is a lot busier with 4 kids! Jeff's work schedule changed and it was not for the better because it took him out of town for days and days at a time. But we are still so thankful that he has a job and one that allows me to stay at home and raise our children.

Back to Luke:

He is now is 2t clothes-where as he was in 12 months in February when we were in Congo together. He is growing! And boy can he put the food away.

He is now in size 6 shoes-he was in size 3 in February.

He weighed around 21 lbs I think in February. Maybe less. He is now 27 lbs. Not sure about inches.

His vocabulary is really improving! I can understand so much of what he says. This is from a child who in February had never uttered a word-did not talk at all nor babble.

His smile lights up a room and he adds so much happiness to our lives and completes our family.

He is a joy. He fits into our family perfectly.

He sleeps in his own bed in his room he shares with his brother. He only sometimes ends up in bed with us, which is fine with me.

He is adventurous, He loves his siblings, He gives the biggest and best hugs.

He loves us to sing to him before bed.

He tells me, "I uv oo, mama" and my heart melts.

Thank you God for my newest son!

My name is Jenna. your kids are a special miracle from god, a gift from above, earthly angel. Your kids are full of happiness, life, smiles, joy, fun,love, and spunk.

Luke is such a loveble little boy.

I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

I wrote this poem

Each of us are Special

Each of us different,

No one is the same

Each of are us are unique in our own way,

Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.

Those who of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.

It doesn't matter what others say

we are special anyway.

What is forty feet and sings? the school chior
