My Baby is 15 ~

How time flies....I can remember her being born like it was yesterday~

We had many long nights. A baby with severe colic and some health issues. But we worked it out, even if I was up until 4 am the first year and sleeping during the day.

She was my first baby. She loved animals and getting dirty. Anything with mud, sh ewas all over that. Not much of a girly girl...

And she loves her brothers and sisters.

They broke the mold with my girl. She is confident, strong in who she is and all about doing what is right. She also marches to her own beat and when asked what kind of cake she wanted...

My girl said "no cake, I would like fruit please"

Now how could I turn down a request like that?!?!

Hannah has grown into a beautiful young lady and all the hard labor, sleepless nights and multiple doctors visits the first two years well it was all worth it.

The story of a boy~

who is still waiting patiently for his forever family to find him~

He was born 3.18.2003. He was found by the SWI staff in 2005 at the age of 2 without any surgeries.

His orphanage sent him to have his lip repaired first then a palate surgery next. He recovered well.

He has grown up in the orphanage for the past 6 years waiting and watching all the other kids leave with their forever families. In his own words he "really wants to be adopted but is sometimes scared." He sees the girls leave and would love to have his own family.

I have seen his file and he will need a bone graft surgery soon. He may also need some dental work.

In an update recieved by our agency yesterday they stated he has not had any further surgery but did suffer a fall on the stairs and needed three stitches.

Can you imagine this poor child falling and needing sticthes and not having his mama there to hold him and tell him it will be alright?!?!

"Robert" has been waiting on the list for a family since we chose our precious Gracie back in 2007!! That is a long time to wait...and to wonder when is my turn?

Please don't let him become a statistic. Could you be his forever family?

Contact Kathy Junk at for more information. Wasatch is a great agency, we have used them twice. They also offer a grant in the amount of $2500 if you qualify.

Robert is a bit shy and his peers pick on him because of his unclear speech. He is sometimes sad.

I think a forever family will help take that sadness away. This child needs a home where he can be comfortable and run and play with a family that will love him for who he is.
