Good lookin family there. Best wishes for the adoption. All of my children are pretty much out of the nest. Kind of quiet, but all hell breaks loose when the grandkids are here.

You said it. I can't wait until Michael is 5 and can do his first Kid's Q. I'll have to recruit Rick Rucker's kids to mentor mine.

Andy, didn't you get reserve at Warrensburg, MO this year? I think that's where I've seen you.

I seem to remember that, too. :wink: I should be so lucky. Hey, maybe I could be a Meathead this weekend! :biggrin:

Can't cook, but I may show up on Saturday. Kinda depressing me that BBQ is over for a few months.

Two things god meant to be together for sure: family and bbq. Congrats Todd on your wonderful little blessings.

My 3 and 5 year olds love helping me bbq for the family. One day I look forward to watching them take over the cooking.

Welcome and thanks for adopting a child. I think that is one of the most honorable things a family can do. Kids dont deserve to live in a danged foster home or other places. They all deseve a great family to love and nuture them. God bless you and the rest of you family for having the intestinal fortitude for what your doing. My thoughts and prayers are out to you all.

We received good news on Christian's adoption this morning. Making a long story short, it looks like the birth mother wants to sign over her parental rights to us. We've been asked to meet with the attorneys, the state agency, and her next Tuesday at Family Court. We don't know how fast this will be resolved officially by the court, but it could be very quick. Our original court date is two months away, so this is very good news to have this done by Christmas. We can pass GO and collect our baby!

We've always said that we aren't here to take kids away from people. We are here as a home for them if they need one. Christian needs one.

He is doing SO well here that it would be a tragedy if he didn't stay here forever. He's even starting to recognize a little bit of spanish and sign language. Pretty cool what they can learn.

Christian is the younger, lighter skin one. Michael is 100% african american (as far as we know). Christian is hispanic, white, black, and native american. So lucky to have so many rich heritages. I'm just a boring ol' WASP.

Thats great news Todd! We'll be praying for speedy completion so that you can enjoy the early Christmas present. Its great that he is thriving so well.... I'm sure it has everything to do with the parents.

Thanks, Andy.

speaking of thriving. Both boys go to a School/Day Care with integrated Spanish. Michael (2 1/2) is speaking some spanish already. He started saying a prayer in English and then Spanish before he eats. Makes all of us do it, too. No one can eat until he finishes. Christian (17 months) is starting to recognize some Spanish words and sign language, too. So, cool. We just love all that they are learning and we're trying to incorporate more of it at home, too. I understand a little (very little) Spanish, but wife knows almost none. So we have to pick it up a bit.
