One year of Jake
These are the only few photos we have of Jake from a short time before he was adopted. We do have some young pictures of him from when he was in foster care with Love Without Boundaries, but they are too young to represent the last year or shortly before. Though I did include one that was done by the group on a Throw Back Thursday.
Finn has many pictures from the orphanage. I'd like to share them because he was a sick, sick boy when he came home. And seeing them shows so much more the impact of the way he looks now.
Here's what we would refer to as his referral picture. This is the first picture we saw of him on a Facebook group for waiting Chinese children, along with a note saying he was actively dying and the orphanage believed his time was running out.
They were right. Here's a chronological journey of Finn, from a sick little boy, to a transfusion dependent kid whose life is mostly normal!
These kids are making a family every day!
So happy One Year Family Day, to two of my favorite gifts!
