On the 30th of August 2008 I prayed and asked God for a little baby, then God gave me Jodie....
My Face may be different, but my feelings the same I laugh and I cry, and I take pride in my gains I was sent here among you, to teach you to love As God in the heavens, looks down from above To Him I am no different, His love know no bounds Its those here among you, in cities and towns That judge me by standards that man has imparted But this family I have chosen will help me get started For I'm one of the children, so special and few That came here to learn the same lessons as you That love is acceptance it must come from the heart We all have the same purpose, though not the same start The Lord gave me life, to live and embrace And I'll do it as you do but at my own pace

Hello World - I am 20 months old!

It's been a while
Well I have to admit, it's been a while (a very long while). The last 8 months have been really busy for us, I started working and stopped working again.... long story but I am working from home now and my precious little Jodie is with me. It's difficult I have to admit to work and to look after her, but God is giving me so much strength. Jodie is doing really great, I am running after her as she is crawling really fast and laugs when I run after her. Her eating is still a problem and the dreaded constipation has returned. We are starting her tests again and hopefully we can get her spinal MRI done as we have tried on two seperate occassions but it failed. It's unbelievable to think that she is now 20 months old - WOW time has really passed quickly. She went through a series of pneumonia and whooping cough but that is a thing of the past now. She still feeds every 2 hours and has been drinking out of a sippy cup for 6 months now. She loves standing while holding onto something and jumping up and down. I have never seen a child friendlier than her, she is absolutely adorable and smiles all the time. I will try and update Jodie's blog on a more regular basis as I really miss blogging and bragging about her.
