Our family is growing again.....

This time....a son-in-law!! Ashlyn and Will are anticipating their wedding on July 9, 2016. 
We are all very excited and blessed to have Will join our family!

Tia is doing so well! It is absolutely amazing the difference in our little girl from when we brought her home two months ago. Her easy smiles is what stands out as the biggest change.
 She is so much more relaxed and free. Seeing her personality emerge is so much fun!
 Tia is a delightful little girl and sooo loved!

Kian and Tia have lots of fun together! We were quite amused watching him try to help her drive his remote control car! He let her drive it until it got hung up somewhere and then she would hand the control back to him to get the car "unstuck"! 

Big brothers are so much fun!!!

Much to the delight of Ashlyn and Chantel, the other area where we see an enormous change in two months is Tia's interaction with them. She now runs into their arms instead of pushing them away....smiles at them instead of scowling....and squeals with delight as they hug and love on her!  She no longer scans the room to make sure they are not around before
 entering....so freeing for all of us!!
Thank you to all of you who have prayed for Tia and our family in this area!
Prayers have been answered! 

Tia is a constant chatterbox! And she doesn't just chatter to herself...she wants a response from whoever is nearby. She will tug at our arm until we look at her and repeat whatever word or phrase she is saying! Her vocabulary is growing daily! She still calls herself QiaoQioa (chowchow) and her current favorite thing to do is to be a helper. We constantly hear her say "QiaoQioa helper" as she helps one of us (or thinks she helps) do a task.
