Julia is the skim board queen! She is REALLY good and even had people on the beach asking for lessons!
He jumped in a 1000 times. He and Sam made up all kinds of "boy" jumps-Star Wars, gorilla, sword fighting, Bakugan, Kung-fu, etc!
Boogie boarding is always a must!
I love these SILLY kids!!!!!!!!

So this "special needs" little fella, turns out pretty "normal". Now we do have a ways to go with the palate surgery he is going to need and speech which he desperately needs, but all in all, a"normal" kid. If you have ever considered adopting a "special needs" child please don't let those words scare you. Yes, there are needs out there that are vast and comprehensive but the majority of these kids' needs are pretty ordinary. What they really need.....love, a family, a chance, and to be told about their savior.
To celebrate our great doctors' reports and Xin's excellent behavior, we all went to see Karate Kid today. So cool....all filmed in China. We had seen so many of the places in the film, which made it even better. Xin loved his 1st movie and watched the entire thing. They spoke a lot of Chinese and it was neat to see him listening. We may have missed a lot of his typical baby-book "firsts" but I have so enjoyed seeing the joy on his face when he experiences something new for the 1st time. A blessing of older child adoption!!!! We are thankful for a great report and a fun day!!!!!
