More of Keith from Day #1 (Lots of pictures and more videos!)

One thing I've learned today is that Keith definitely has the "flexibility" that comes with that extra chromosome!  Watch this!

Keith also likes to snuggle and look at his new family!
Keith also is a tiny boy who is learning what it is like to be surrounded by things meant to enjoy and have people love you!

Keith is loving to have a Daddy!  (Isn't this picture wonderful)
Keith is waaaaayyyy smaller than a size 18 months sleeper!
Keith likes to suck his thumb.

Keith has tiny little legs.

Keith is such a cutie!
Keith likes to be picked up and is a very fast learner!

  4. It is so very responsible to bring 4 high needs special needs kids simultaneously! Even though it totally increases the odds of your adoption disrupting!! Especially when you have so many kids at home already -- so much so that you would not be allowed to adopt or foster kids in the US! As you have soooo many already that your home may as well e a low quality group home / foster home!!

    Be blessed!! Sure hope you don't end up as a "how could you" on reformtalk. Blogspot.com!!!!

    1. lol I almost deleted this comment, but it is so ridiculous that I am going to leave it to your shame. You obviously haven't read much of my blog. I've been adopting children from the US foster care system since 2001. Our most recent child came that route in July of 2011 and his adoption just finalized. His worker knew about the kids that were coming when she brought him here and would love to go with me to get them as a matter of fact. She even said that she would love to place more kids with me now except that we need to focus on the ones coming. I have children with various special needs already. They all do WONDERFUL and have achieved more than we were told they ever could.

      I'm sure that you are probably someone who has never adopted a child, so you have no idea. You also likely don't know (or care) about the fate of the children in these institutions or in foster care. I thank you though for showing my readers what kind of idiocy exists in the world and how little thought those people take before they jump to conclusions. You also can't count, because we are bringing home FIVE children, not 4.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to troll around on my page. I always know we are on the right track when the devil is throwing stones and I find it very encouraging. :)

      I surely am "blessed" though because God chose me to be the mother to each and every one of these children.

  5. I think Keith had Daddy wrapped around his little fingers already! I love to see the smile on Daddy's face as he holds his son.

    1. Daddy is most certainly wrapped. :) It is most certain that Brent will be wrapped around all 5 children's tiny crooked pinky fingers before he heads home! You know how that goes!

  6. Oh my goodness, he is ADORABLE, Amanda!

    I cannot describe how thankful I am that Keith will be moving out of that orphanage into YOUR FAMILY. So much love in the house!

    1. Thanks Susanna! We are so thankful that God used you to help us find him. :) He is amazing and we are so ready to spoil him. Dayton said yesterday, "I think we will have to spoil Keith even more than we have Julianne, because he needs it more". I'm with him! :)

  11. He is cute as a button. I am so glad that he is learning already what it means to be all wrapped up in arms that love you. Looking forward to the day that he is safe and home with many, many more arms to hold him and love him every day.
