Update

I spoke with the Geneticist today and all of Faith's testing came back negative. The Dr. said that he has no further recommendations and we should follow up in 6 months, and I'm completely OK with that.

I forget about, with each kid we have, that period of adjustment. With Faith it seemed that the adjustment period lasted longer than usual. I'm not sure if it's because she was adopted or if it's her special needs, maybe both. I finally feel that period has passed. I feel very content and happy with the new structure of our family. I no longer concern myself with what is causing Faiths delays, rather I've accepted her as she is and look forward to watching her grow. I feel like supermom, I can conquer the world and anything that it throws at me.

Paris ad Roc are doing well. They have been busy with school, soccer, krav maga and Spanish class. Rex is 2yrs old, enough said, and Faith is progressing everyday. Her next goal is to earn to crawl. I ask that you pray for her to achieve that goal. Jaymes been doing well. He is still exercising and watching his eating, although challenging at times, he is powering through it.

I have an amazing family and although chaotic to most I love every minute of it.
