A boy named S


Cara and I had the chance to meet face to face such a special and amazing little guy. He came to Canada through an international adoption and would be considered special needs...but once you meet him he is just special...period! Those of us with "normal" limbs moan and complain so much about what we CAN'T do, well a boy named S(named that way simply for privacy sake) does more at the age of 3 with his so called limitations(he has only one finger on one arm and only one toe on one of his feet) than kids his age. He is incredible, inspirational and just too cute for it to be legal! His smile will crack the hardest of hearts and his abundant love just carries you away to a wonderful bright place.

He was saved from a horrible, unimaginable place, the abuse and neglect he faced is undescribable, and to have the spirit he does...he is one special person that I know God will use in incredible ways, he has already impacted those in his circle of influence and that circle will just get larger as the sky is the limit for this little guy.

It was an amazing time to spend with his family and S and we can't wait to see their faces at the airport,along with our family, the day we bring Julia home. Their love and support for us as we have travelled, and continue to travel this adoption road is wonderful and we thank them again for it!

Hopefully they still love us. S asked me to show him some magic tricks, so I did some basic coin tricks with a dime, and then "infused it with magic" so that, in the presence of his parents I said," If you put this dime under your pillow, in the morning it will turn into a loonie!" He ran to his room and put it under the pillow right then. Knowing how smart he is, I bet there have been countless dimes since our visit under his pillow, so I wonder how much our short visit has cost the parents, LOL :).
