So I thought I'd focus on them today on the blog too!
Keith is 5 years old and Aleshia is 6 years old. Neither of them can even sit up without support yet. Aleshia was transferred to a mental institution when she was only 3 years old. Keith has been in his tiny crib in that same orphanage since he left the hospital after he was born. He's been in a "sick room" for over 2 1/2 years at this point, even though he was initially moved there because of a respiratory infection. :(
Both of them have a long way to go developmentally. Keith has a lot of growing that he needs to do. Right now he will still be riding in an infant carseat, because he was only 12 pounds when Brent was there. We've got a lot to do in order for him to begin to grow in size and develop the skills to sit, crawl, stand, and eventually walk. Aleshia is bigger, but seems to have something going on with her hips. We will be working to see what is going on with them, as well as see if she can gain the ability to sit up and to bear weight on her legs.
Here is my favorite video of Keith I think:
Here is my favorite of Aleshia:
So very soon I will hold them.
Their forever will begin and the days in an orphanage and a mental institution will be over.
Here is the stroller that will take them through the airports:
Here is Aleshia's bed waiting for her:
Here is Keith's bed waiting for him:
The swing, bouncer, and walker are put together.
It is almost time to go and get them!!!!
