Nolan & Callie T.
I wanted to finally drop you all a line since we have been home almost two months now. It has been wild and a hard adjustment of course for the whole family, but overall we are doing well. I sometimes think our two adopted kids might be taking it better than the rest of us. Our two bio boys have both had some struggles with jealousy and sharing "their" things, but at least our older seems to have made peace and it will just take time for us all.
Azariah (Riah) or DiDi is doing well despite his health issues. He has already been to a number of doctor/dentist/ophthalmologist appointments with more to go, but good so far that nothing crazy has been discovered. And we have his extensive testing and a possible surgery date held for him in December at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH where the world experts are for his anorectal malformation. So we are hopeful there, since it has been a hard road to manage his symptoms daily at home!
Mei Xia was a hard case at first since she understandably was grieving hard for her foster sibling who isn't available for adoption. Now she is my shadow and has made enormous progress already in many areas. She has learned not to be afraid of grass, dirt, all animals, swimming, etc! Now she is out running and playing with no shoes in the backyard just like our boys.
We are so grateful for your gift which helped greatly to ease our burden coming home. What you do is a huge blessing to families like ours!
We are not yet feeling in a new norm, so please keep us in your prayers as we keep working towards feeling like these 2 new little ones are "ours."
The T Family
