The dinosaur tamers:
This week we celebrated Andrew's eigth birthday. We have chosen to celebrate it on the anniversary of the day that we met the boys: July 13th. As we continue to discover all the remarkable characteristics of this special boy, we remain in awe of him: his determination, his sense of humor, his ambition, his desire to please, his compassion, his observation skills, his insight into things beyond his years. Okay, sometimes he also drives us crazy!!! But we cannot imagine our family life without this tremendous gift!

We just had a big Gotcha party...hard to believe it's been a year since we brought the kids home! Have your boys grown like weeds? Shurabe has gained 11 lbs. and grown 6 inches.
