Another little boy, and a prayer request

From an adoptive family who visited him in February 2011: "He is precious, loves attention, very smart, loves piano and type of music. He has a smile that will melt your heart. Even though he only has a few fingers on his right hand he still grabs and holds things. He walks. Lovely Lovely child!"

This little guy is Doyle. He is 3, just a few months younger than my daughter, and he sounds like aside from his physical differences (missing fingers and toes, some webbed fingers, cleft lip and palate) he is pretty normal. He is doing a great job adapting to his differences and there is no end to what he could accomplish with the help of a family.

Someone just needs to step forward and be that family.

I have not yet shared on this blog that part of how God made it clear we were not Genesis' family was through his gift of another biological child. I am 16 weeks pregnant with a little one that for now we are calling Melchizedek. I have been having gallbladder problems which are worse than with previous pregnancies and am scheduled to have my gallbladder removed later this month. I would appreciate any prayers for my baby's safety.

    Doyle is another cutie. He looks like he is ready to take on the world!
