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!

Guess who?

Can you guess whose little piggies these are? Aren't they sweet and perfectly yummy?

They belong to my little lovey, Theo. Of course. :)

Theo now tips the scales at 20 pounds 9 ounces in his nicest jammies. So lets just call it 20 pounds. That means that he has gained 7 pounds in the past 5 months. He has grown three inches in height. He has gained 1 inch in head circumference.

Let's put that weight gain into perspective. He has gained as much weight in the last five months as he gained in his first four years.

I call that astounding. A miracle.

New adventures start this week...pre-school!


  1. Look at those cute little toes!! :-)


  2. Theo looks amazing! I wanted to comment the last few weeks that his cheeks are filling out. Zhen also looks much more healthy- he has a new look in his eyes and they both look so happy!Praise God for the work he did and is still doing in their lives.

  3. His growth reminds me of how well the Browning children are doing since they've been home. It's amazing. Praise the Lord! I love hearing the "after the rainbow" stories as much as I love hearing the "gotcha" ones. What can I say, I have always been a fan of happy endings (new beginnings). ~ Grace
