Little Man's Forever Family Day
Where do I ever begin! Jet has come so far in a year. The days of rocking himself back and forth are gone. He now lets mommy and daddy do that for him. He came to us the size of a 12 month old and he is now starting to wear 3T. He has grown over 4 inches in a year. He has gained 9 pounds. He has learned to walk, run, climb and jump. He is no longer afraid of the grass and runs barefoot through it and even on the gravel driveway. He is ALL BOY!! The higher he goes the more he likes it! He goes to bed with a tractor or a truck every night. He has learned a few words and just last week started saying dada!! We all were smiling from ear to ear! So proud of our boy! Although he has few words, there is one word that is by far his favorite, and that is HOME! Home is where he feels safe, home is where he longs to go when things get overwhelming. As we turn the corner into our driveway he begins to say home, home, home. He is smiling and clapping. Oh sweet boy we are so glad you are home! and that we took a GIANT leap of faith and brought you home! The road has not been easy, but God did not promise easy. He just promised He will walk with us and will carry us when we need it most. Jethro still has a long way to go, but each day he is learning more and more to love and trust that we are his forever family. We love you so much little man!!
