One of the staff members of the agency that has his file(and that has agreed to release his file to our agency) sent me an email this morning with some thoughts on him. She had the privilege of meeting him and wanted to share her thoughts.
The following is an excerpt from her email:
During my time with XXXX, although short, I did not notice any cognitive delays. Nor did I notice any issues with his hand.
Unfortunately the disk in which XXXX interview was recorded on was damaged. I am utterly frustrated by this because I lost info on so many kiddos. All boys at that. Not sure if you know but boys are harder to place than girls =/ Not sure why cause I have 4 boys that are fabulous!
Anyhow, I do remember thinking that he was a smart boy. He lets you know what he likes and doesn’t like. He doesn’t like dogs by the way =) But he does like fish. I also remember having his file open and some other ladies in the room saw his picture. They started asking him “Is that you?” Then they would ohh and ahh and tell him how handsome he is. He smiled proudly and said confidently “I know” LOL
I think that we were able to salvage the video of his talent show. We have some professionals working on it. I should have it back the middle of next week. I will send it to you then.
Ahh, my baby. She is talking about my baby. It continues to amaze me how you can love someone so much that you've never met.
Course I am madly in love with my Lord and I've never "met" him either. At least in that sense.
And I loved my other kids when I was pregnant with them though I'd never met them either....even if they did make me barf periodically...
and made my ankles fat....
and stretch my stomach to ridiculous proportions...
and, well, never mind.
So I suppose it should come as no surprise that these two boys have a large chunk of our hearts and we've never met them either. Gracious how we can't wait to pour out that love on them.
