today as we meet for thanksgiving dinner , i think of my two little boys so far away and not knowing they have a family waiting to bring them home. after reading all the CRAP on the yahoo group . my husband is concerned for our young boys if people start causing trouble for the children being adopted. we have decided that no matter what others think about FAS we are lucky that God brought my young cousin into our lives so we are prepared for the boys. hmmm some would say it is his plan for us. and i believe it. i do want to vent one thing here because i can... the people on the estonia group has put a bitter taste in our mouths for people , not for the children just the adults who got what they wanted a child to love and then they complain about it. i know first hand that venting to someone is a great help when dealing with FAS , my mother has helped me through it all. she has been through it all with us. when i knew that we couldnt have biological children ,i read everything i could about adoption and when our SW did our homestudy she was blown away with how well Arly behaves and does in school. she questioned Arly about us bring children into the home and she was ready for it. You get out of the child what you put into them most of the time but when dealing with FAS you never know what you get. and my undeerstanding from AHI they told us everything and if i ask anything from them they try to find out what they can. but no matter what they tell us about our boys it can never change my mind about loving them because i love them with all my heart. and im sure people are thinking well you havent got them home yet. but i didnt at first want my cousin she was kinda left on us but i never regret it. and we have chosen our boys.

I am so sorry about all the comments on the yahoo group.:( I think the problem is that those people thought they were getting healthy, typically developing kids. They didn't know they were getting kids with special needs. Anyway, I am glad that you have had a good experience with Arly and are willing to bring home your boys. Praying the date comes soon!
