|A cookie his massage therapist made for him!|
We requested more information about him and learned all about his diagnosis and history. He had been in care since the day he was born, up for adoption his whole life and no one ever tried to adopt him. I fully believe that the Lord gave us Antonio to bless our home and also help me navigate the deep sorrow of the death of our daughter. Antonio is such a wonderful person. That little five year old brought us a lot of joy from the day we met him. He was moved to our home and six months later we adopted him and made him our son. Carolyn and Antonio shared an adoption day.
He fit in seamlessly and was just one of the gang!
He had never left down town Atlanta in his whole life, so experienced a lot of firsts with us. Like going fishing, to the zoo, museum or going to the ocean.
He absolutely loved being in a large active family.
Loved having his own dad for the first time in his life.
He was and is, just so loved by us all.
He loves to bowl...
He loved it when we started adopting little ones. He is the best big brother!
He loves meeting up and going places with extended family! Like his papa and nana. (Tim's dad below)
For his birthday he wanted Aunt "S" to make him a Bob the Builder cake. She always does such wonderful work. It made his day.
Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
May God in heaven give you health and long life. May He hold you in His powerful hand keeping you safe and well. You are a true blessing and we love you dearly!
