I wonder what Simon's doing now? I wonder if he is sleeping, is he dreaming anything? I wonder if he had a good day? I wonder if he's been sick lately? I wonder who his friends are, if any, and what kinds of toys he likes to play with? I wonder if he's any of the caregivers' favorite kid in the room? I wonder if he ever gets bored, or if he's just used to doing nothing? I wonder if he ever gets to use any of the therapy equipment that has been donated to his orphanage? I wonder if he'll be scared of us? I wonder what he'll think of his new dad's goatee?? I wonder if he'll smile when he recognizes us on subsequent visits? I wonder if he'll miss us when we come home to wait out the 10 days?

I wonder if he smiled today...?

He was and is meant to be with us. All of his little dreams are ours too. I just wonder what he is going to do when he has to eat boxed-meals... hehe.. kidding... FOR REAL - kidding... :)

Ahem. I choose to IGNORE that "boxed-meal" comment.

Adoption Adventure said...

Missy, We have a lot in common. I would love to be able to adopt a DS child. I get on Reeces Rainbow and drool over all those precious faces. Simon is adorable and I remember seeing his picture even before I knew who his mommy was :) I used to teach special education and DS children were the joy of my heart. Didn't even know these kids were available for adoption until I heard about RR because Lena was on there. I just know hubby would not go for 9 although I think my older children would be so great with a younger one. I know you asked about some of the older kids we met I would be happy to send pictures and tell you what I know if you e-mail me.
Your 4th pictures were great my boys would be so envious we have a burn ban on here in Texas because of drought conditions. Rhonda

If he hasn't smiled lately, he will be smiling soon! Alot judging by the pics of his happy big sister! :)

I am so excited to hear more about him when you finally are there holding him for the first time!

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
