We finally got around to celebrating having Alex home for 1 year. In the pictures above he is trying to blow out the candles by yelling at them! He has completed one year of pre-school, is currently in summer school for one more week and will be starting kindergarten in the fall. Alex has fit into our family really, really well and we love him tons!!

While we were eating... ... they were hungry
While we were playing... ... they were restrained
While we were tucking our kids into bed... ... they were alone
While we turned up the heat... ... they laid in the icy cold
While we wrapped our children in blanket sleepers... ... they laid in their own excrement
While we sang songs and listened to music... ... they listened to the screams and cries of those around them
While we rocked our babies... ... they silently rocked themselves
While we hugged our kids... ... they scratched at their own faces and pulled their own hair for stimulation
While we cried over scraped knees... ... they moaned in their loneliness
While we brushed our daughters' beautiful hair... ... they had their heads shaven to stave off the lice
While we fought off the flu with love and nourishment... ... they got the flu and went Home.
No longer suffering... but so many more still are.
In memory of those that have never felt the love of a family, and have passed away alone.

I think Alex is liking all of his new experiences with us and feeling pretty comfortable. He liked the boat ride but there wasn't enough room for him to run around. He managed to not fall in the lake, although his dad did fall in and ruined his cell phone in the process.
After changing school districts at the last minute, Alex finally started school and is already doing very well. He tries hard at everything that is introduced to him and has a pretty long attention span. He loves to learn new words is learning some sign language too. Alex is a very smart little boy!
