Some Pictures…the ones I promised weeks ago. :-)  


Micah and the cup (his security blanket) I think they didn’t get much to drink at the institution. Certainly not whenever they wanted it. When we saw him eating lunch there was never any drink given. He hikes this cup under his arm and just keeps it with him. Very cute. And sad.


Our good friend Randy Done and Matthew.


The very pretty Hannah.


Eli…practicing his wrestling moves.


Matthew loves the brothers and sisters. He just loves being with us.


Micah is Randy’s pal (unless Randy is making Micah obey. :-) ).


All these pics were on the Saturday before Resurrection Day. (April 11). We had the Dickinson’s over (including their 2 new kids from Ukraine…they got home a couple of weeks after us), Randy & Brenda Done and a friend of Blake’s (it was also Blake’s 15th birthday!). Ugh. I’m old. :-) I had this great idea that it would be fun to dye eggs with everyone. So I boiled 5 dozen eggs and set up lots of cups of dye (with Brenda’s help). I took a couple of pics and left the room so that I could maintain my sanity. :-) And so the kids could just have fun without me saying be careful or don’t get that on your clothes or something silly and fatherly like that. :o)


The very pretty Bethany.


Wayne & Eli.


Marcus Dickinson


Blake & Hannah


The three stooges.

Are these two guys brothers or what?





Matthew & Hannah. He really loves Hannah. She’s so tender with him.


He didn’t every eat these leaves believe it or not.

Our old swing set. The kids took it down and made way for the new one. We got home all excited to get the boys outside and playing on the swingset only to find that it was rotten and the bolts pulled through that hold the swings because the wood was disintegrated. Didn’t make the winter well I guess. So I started patching it and more and more fell off and came apart. So we ditched it. I’ll show a pic of the new one. I just finished it last Saturday night.


We’ve had this car since Blake was a baby. He just turned 15. Wish our real cars lasted that long.!!!


The wagon… One of their favorite things…


What next?

    Such beautiful children! You are certainly a blessed Daddy! Hannah looks so much like her Mommy! Bethany is also looking so very grown up and beautiful.

    Thanks for reminding me of our great day together. I am still so excited that we could share our adoption journeys together. You and Mary have been and continue to be a wonderful support to the NEW Dickinson family. We thank God for little Eli, he was our inspiration. Because of him there are 4 children home, tucked in bed safely were they are loved and cared for. Praise God! I'm looking forward to many more celebrations with our familes together. :)
