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

Jodie's Journey by Granny Engela!

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.


  1. Wow! She has really grown up! I miss reading about her too...I hope to see more soon!

  2. Hi Vickie - it's so great to "have you back". Sounds like you guys have been up to sooo much. Hugs

  3. I can't believe how big she's gotten!! I too have missed blogging and am trying to get back in touch with everyone. Jodie is doing fantastic and looks absolutely happy. Looking forward to hearing more when you find the time to brag about her.
