On this past Friday, September 7th, we attended our 4 year old grandson Russell's adoption! It was a long awaited event, and we were all so happy it had finally happened! He came to our family as a foster child when he was about 3 months old, and was developing into a gregarious 10 month old when he was given back to his biological family! Of course we were heart broken, but knew that was a part of the foster care system! Another year passed and my daughter & son-in-law got a call asking them if they would take Russell back into their home. He came back a troubled anxious child, so much in need of attention, discipline & guidance!
We all look forward to helping him become the wonderful person he was born to be!! He just started pre-school a week ago, and my son-in-law told me how excited Russell is to be in school. He said that Russell gets up super early every morning and dresses himself, packs his schoolbag, and is ready to go before his older siblings are out of bed!! I couldn't help but make this card for him after hearing that story!! Love you so much Russ!!
