Chew Chew Chew

Check out Seth demolishing this apple!!!  

When we adopted Seth he could not bite, chew or swallow. He used his fingers to push the food around in his mouth and to push it down his throat. 

He's really doing well with his biting and chewing skills!

Who remembers these?

I remember my mom rolling my hair with the pink sponge rollers.  I always felt so special.  The rollser were killer to sleep in, but I remember waking up the next day and my hair being all springy and fluffy and curly.  I found these rollers at WalMart the other day and couldn't resist.

Gloria is THREE today!!!!

It's Gloria's birthday and she would like nothing more that to have you make a donation to Trinity :)
This is Gloria's 2nd birthday home, more birthdays home than in the orphanage!!!!! 
Will you help us celebrate our special dolly?

We are looking for 47 people to make a $10.00 donation.
Why 47?  Because sweet Glory has 47 Chromosomes!
Why $10.00 Because Sweet Glory was born in 2010
 and it is a nice even amount that nearly everyone can afford :)
For the donation, I will send you an "Adopted" bracelet.
The front says "ADOPTED" and the back says Ephesians 1:5
If you are not familiar with that scripture, it says
"He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself,
according to the kind intention of His will."

You can make the donation to our personal Paypal account here or to our RR account on the side of the blog.
