Conversations with Jake: Home 6 Months

Jake has his pre-op appt. today. His surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday. I didn't post this yesterday, as I really wanted to post about Helen. 

Jake's been almost home for 6 months. We've known him for 6 months yesterday.  It is like night and day. No more biting, no more spitting on the floor, no more peeing absolutely everywhere, no more crying and wailing for those he left behind, no more running away, no more anger.

He is a completely different child, and yet, still has incredibly huge personality. He captures your heart right away. He loves to hug and rub ears. He loves to run and play. His Foster mom wasn't kidding when she wrote how he is "very active".  He's loud. Very.Very loud. He's as funny as anything. 

He still eats large amounts of food in one sitting and likes to know if there's still more. He was such an incredibly difficult child in China. Yet, without fear over-taking him, he is the sweetest! He has an amazing English vocabulary. 

Here is Jake's interview being with us for 6 months. 

He's come a long way.
And so have we.

I love how loving Jake is with us especially since we don't see him too often. We get BIG hugs and kisses.

Love Omi

Your Jake loves to rub ears, my Ky loves to rub thumbnails.

"He's come a long way. And so have we."
That's what it's all about. Amen sister!
