I encouraged the boys to blog about what happened and they posted to their blogs. I know how much comfort I have received from so many of you who have taken time to comment on the blog or email. If I could impose upon any of you to please take a moment, find their blogs shown on the upper left of this one, and maybe leave them an encouraging word or two...it might help them as well.
This is not easy, we could avoid all of this and not have brought them with us to experience what has occurred or could have kept them private and not blogging, but this will help their spirits grow and mature, they have learned something about love here...about acceptance...about how hearts grow cold if not nurtured. It may make them better husbands and fathers some day. At least I'd like to think there are positive lessons to be learned from this.
We have no word yet on other children available, but know the woman at the Ministry of Education is working on it. We will see what develops and keep you posted.
Thanks for all your love, it is cold here in more ways than one.
