Psalm 68:5-6

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

I am Stepanie Nance. My family adopted two little boys with Down Syndrome from Ukraine in 2010. I hope to educate and to inspire you. I hope to make you laugh and to make you cry.

Come along for the ride. It's a wild one!

I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but I have solved my camera woes! I have a webcam on my little baby computer!!

I'm home from Kansas City again. Theo was having a difficult night with gas pains. I finally had to hand him over to his night nurse crying pitifully and hit the road. I had to be home before 2:30am so that dad could help me get the rental car returned before he left town for his workweek.

Theo is really doing great and I pushed for taking him home last night, but no. The doctors are being cautious. Don't they know how well qualified I am to care for a fragile child? *sigh*

Zhen was not that impressed to see me this morning. What a confusing time it must be for him. one day I'm here, one day I'm not. I'm looking forward to instituting some boring normalcy around here. He finally let me feed him some eggs. I had a fair mess to clean up this morning before making breakfast so I just went ahead and fed him. He a little sweetie pie, opening his mouth ever so slightly.

Notice my orange wristband? That is my speed pass to get through security at Theo's hospital. I love that they take security so seriously there.

Ruby has taken a shine to this new little man! She loves to pet him. She likes to bend over to look him in the eyes and then run away giggling. Too fun!


  1. hope Theo is home soon poor little boy.
    the photo's of Zhenya and Ruby (hope i have her name right)are lovely. i've been secretly busting to see a photo of Zhenya since he hit US soil ;-) I know, he is home but so nice to see a photo of him home, KWIM>

  2. Great that you can be home. your problem with Theo also made me think of extremely malnourished orphans in Africa. I pray that he is back home soon and that your days ahead would be more easy with less bumps in the road.

  3. on a different note, you have a deer on your wall. I have never seen that in my life nothing like it hehe only in the movies how cool is that! did your Hubby catch it? or you brought it?
