A year ago we lost our first referral. It was a time of confusion and sadness. As I look back on the situation I still do not know why God allowed it to happen. Sometimes I speculate on why but I never dwell on it. I look at Henry every day and thank God he is our child. He is such a delightful gift to us. Henry is teaching Igor to love in a way I never thought possible.
Henry loves to give hugs and kisses constantly. He would sleep with Igor (in Igor's bed) if Igor would let him. Henry loves and adores those who are close to him. Igor has seen this and questioned why does Henry kiss you all the time. Why does Henry like to give hugs?
Last week I was doing something in the kitchen when Igor ran up to me and gave me three kisses then went back to playing. It was the sweetest thing but so out of character for Igor. Perhaps more of the Orphanage Dust is being swept away.
Thank you God for giving us Henry.
