So this last week has been filled with both joy and heart ache.....first Mr. J and Miss A were removed and gone to a family in Brownwood, still under CPS. That was very sad when they left. It is like part of your family is gone and you will probbally never know what happens. They had become part of our family and even though Mr. J had his moments they blessed us all and they will be missed. They will live in our hearts for ever and always be apart of the family.
They joy that came this week is that all paper work is in and the transition paperwork is beginning to bring my new granddaughter home. That,s right Brandi and Brandon are adopting again!!!!!! She is a beautiful little girl and like Matthew special needs. She was born premature and has club feet with little sensation in her legs.......But she is a joy. Her name will be Lillian Autumn Grace Fought. Such a big name for such a little girl......
I am very proud of my kids......they do no have a fear for special needs but a geniune love for them. They have taught me not to be afraid they are just like everyone else with different ways of mobility, communicating, and showing you love. It has been a joy to have Matthew in my life and all our lives....his is an amazing little boy who has just surpassed all the original doctors expectations. I know he will be mobile someday. We connected to him from the minute we saw him. We connected with Autumn Grace at that moment also.
They have taught me not to look at what they cant do but at what the can and to push a little further. God has blessed me with five grand kids and now just four (with out Mr. J and Miss A) and I have enjoyed each and every one.
I am the luckiest person.....so tell them you love them, cherish and respect them for who they are and most of all thank God for them......each and every one is a blessing from Him.

On March 19, 2009 at 9:30 in the morning.....Matthew became Joshua Matthew Lee Fought. This day was long time coming. Through all the heartbreaks of adoptions missed and watching kids leave my daughters home to go live somewhere else after thinking they would stay. We finally have a baby boy again. He is very special and the most amazing little guy. This day also has another exciting thing....not that the finalization wasn't exciting enough we got to meet the newest member of the family.
I now have a granddaughter and my daughter and son-in-law has thier daughter or has Brandon calls her "his princess". She is just that.....beautiful, tiny, and just amazing. She was born at 30 weeks and she is a fighter. She is going to come home soon and the excitement is unbelievable. Just imagine getting everything you wanted in one day. That is how it is with me, Brandi and Brandon....one adoption was final and one is just beginning........Both of these babies were long awaited for and loved even before they were born or even known about.
God knew these babies would be placed with us and we just had to be patient.......that is hard to do. So stay tuned for more amazing adventures of my babies.
