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!

Another first!

I cannot imagine that Theodore has ever had a chocolate chip cookie before this very day. I wasn't sure if he was ready for it, but while I was busy baking dad handed him one!!

What do you think? Was he ready? :) (I just think he's a little dreamboat!)

Here comes dad with another cookie!!! This is the face he makes whenever he sees food of any kind.

Give it to him, already!



On a side note, I'm not sure that chocolate after dinner was a good idea. Theo just absolutely would not go to sleep at bedtime. Maybe it was the sugar, maybe the chocolate. I thought a nice warm bath would relax him, but they just get him all excited.
We are looking forward to many more firsts for Theo and Zhen over the next few days. Merry Christmas!


  1. My girls and I really enjoy seeing your Theo and how big he is getting. He brings us such joy just from the pictures! Thank you for sharing his story with us.

  2. Yum yum! What a sweetheart! I cannot believe how much he has changed and grown since you got home. Totally amazing! Totally GOD! Merry Christmas!!!

  3. Someone really likes his chocolate!

    How cute is that? :)

    Blessings, Kerin
