It has been a little while and we have had some news to share but been slow to post. We have two foster children that have been with us for 2 weeks now. They are sisters, a three year old and a one year old. Rose and Madison. We aren't sure how long we will have them but would love to have them forever. They are the most precious girls and we are a lucky family. It has definitely been a little crazy around here- getting everyone off to school and daycare, everyone fed, backpacks packed, shoes tied and not to mention the hair done. I had no idea the first week what to do with a girls hair. I am learning and loving it. Friday night we did nails together. Too fun! Andrew has enjoyed the girls up until the last few days and now will cry when the slightest bit of attention is given to someone else. He is learning to and adjusting. He is also taking hippotherapy every Wed. and loves to ride- so much so that he fell asleep during his evaluation on the Welsh Pony. I will try to keep up a bit better with the updates but for now we are having lots of fun and adjusting to a big family. GOOD TIMES!!!
We are a family of five living in San Antonio, TX. Our son Andrew was diagnosed at 20 months with Autism. We knew that something was still not right about his diagnosis. After many doctors appointments with specialists and geneticists he received a diagnosis of Rett Sydnrome in November 2008. He continues to struggle daily with communication, swallowing, using his hands and with breathing. We really feel blessed with every day we are given and we are learning to love and live with life's many challenges.
