I Think He Will Be Walking!!!!


My heart just warms up when I look at this picture! Someone asked if I thought Alexsey would be able to walk. My heart always felt that once he was home he would indeed learn to walk. Looks like it might be earlier than that! And look at his smile! When I look at Alexsey I don't see a disability......... I see a child that is so contagiously inspirational that I can't wait to be around him!

We are hurrying as fast as we can little boy! Don't grow up too fast!

Hi Christine, I need to introduce myself... my husband Jake and I are adopting Pavel from Ukraine. You are one of the first families whos blog I read from RR (before we ever dreamed of adopting through RR) and were SUCH an inspiration. I still believe God used you (among others) to lead us to adopt through RR.

So I just made the connection LAST night that you are the family adopting Alexsey!

Just wanted to say congrats and thank you for following the Lord in both of these adoptions. Its an inspiration. :)

As a physical therapist who works so hard with families and kids to get this result, I am crying tears of joy. His smile says it all. I am so inspired by you and your family. God is using you in wonderful ways.

What a great photo! I love his smile! Going through the adoption journey is certainly worth it when we get to see those smiles! It is great to see him up and walking. I hope you get there real soon.

This picture is BEAUTIFUL! Look at that smile!

Oh, and I wasn't sure if you've noticed, but there is another picture of Alexsey on "The Harp Happenings" blog. I guess you've seen it, but just in case...
Praying you will be able to bring him home as soon as possible!
