Attention

It doesn't matter where we go or what we are doing, LM attacts attention everywhere we go! He is such a cutie that people can't help but talk to him! At the Dr.'s office today he had the nurse cracking up repeating everything that she said; he had another nurse playing peek-a-boo with him and he said "hi" to every person that walked by! At Costco we got a few "not-nice" stares because in addition to be so darn cute...he's also so darn LOUD!! It wasn't all negative there though because my sweet sons were able to touch a woman's heart who has been interested in adoption! She has all daughters (home-grown) and wants to adopt a boy :) It was a pleasure to answer some of her questions and see the amazement in her eyes.

We get attention pretty much everywhere we go for one reason or another....either it's because we are a transracial family, we have all boys (oh if I got paid for every time I heard...'All boys???No girls???'), or the kids are acting up-lol! Noooooo...that last one never happens! Hee hee! It's just something that we have gotten used to and at the end of the day I only have to worry about how ONE thinks of me :) Did I please you today? Did I treat these angels the way You treat me? Did I treat the harsh stares with the love You would want me to? Thanks God for putting together this family ...only You could make us so unique and perfectly matched! Thank you!!
