Wow it has been awhile since I have written anything. I guess life happens and we get busy. Darius is now 6 and in well into his first grade year. He is doing great all A's & B's his Dad and I as well as his teacher are so proud of him. Last Friday the 9th we celebrated our 6 year anniversary of Darius' forever family. When Darius came @ 4 months of age as a foster child we had no idea what God had in store for our family. Darrell and I just knew God is faithful and whatever happened it was in his hands. Well sometimes God just knocks your socks off...Darius never left our arms and we completed his adoption by his 1st birthday. Now 6 years later we are living proof of answered prayer. We will be forever grateful to Darius' birth Mom who chose us to become his forever parents. Darius has begun to ask some questions about his adoption and his life prior to coming to live with us. I answer them as honestly as I can without giving him more information than his little mind can comprehend. So now 6 years later here are some of his favorite things....playing soccer, his dog Rocco and legos, hotwheels cars. He also loves to be outside and his favorite place is my parents pond or farm. He is all boy 100% of the time and I wouldn't change him if I could although, if he had another speed besides wide open occasionally that would be nice. Time flies when your having fun and we are having lots of it at our house. Our favorite holidays are just around the corner and my family has alot to be THANKFUL for! God is still faithful and working miracles in our family.
