Faith to Move a Mountain

In November of 2011, I started this blog as a sort of journal to chronicle the events of our son Quinton's adoption. Quinton is a little boy who was born with an extra special something. Quinton has down syndrome and was given up at birth by his parents because he has down syndrome. His birth parents must not have had any idea what a blessing he would be or I am sure they would not have given him up. Unfortunately in Eastern Europe (Quinton is from Ukraine) people with disabilities are not accepted in society and at the age of 4-6, they are sent to adult mental institutions where most of them die :( Although it breaks my heart that his parents have missed out on such a joyful little boy, God has used this unfortunate situation to bless us with a gift greater than I could have ever imagined: the gift of our first child. If you ever considered adoption-do it! Don't let money deter you. God provided over $20,000 for us to adopt Quinton. We were not fully funded until 50 minutes before we boarded our plane to Ukraine. If you have never considered adoption, go back to the beginning of this blog and read. You will see what a blessing adoption really is. Many people tell us that we are angels for rescuing Quinton, but the honest truth is this: Quinton has given me far more that I will ever be able to give him. He is my little miracle, my silly bug, my baby boy, my love. HE IS MY LIFE!

Daddy's Post

Carol isn't feeling well today. She's taking airborne and trying to nip it in the bud early.  She feels like she is getting a sore throat and maybe a little bit of an upset stomach.  She didn't want to let her reader's down though.  She knows how much you look forward to seeing the most beautiful boy in the world, and who could blame you.  So without further adieu, another video and some more pictures.

Putting Quinton to sleep:
Don't tell the nannies. :)

Mommy is proud of her sleeping baby.

 He is still sleeping, but he looks so cool.
This was the only way I could get a picture of him in sunglasses.

 I love his expression.  He is checking out the camera with curiosity.

 Daddy and QB making Mommy laugh.

How precious.

Such a happy boy.

He is definitely a gift from God.

What are they teaching these kids? lol
I couldn't make a word out of these blocks if I tried.
