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!

More Carrington.

I didn't get to talk to Shelly about Carrington today, but I did send her the first set of grocery/restaurant gift cards from the chip-in. Awesome! I love how we pull together when one of us needs some help!

If you look to the right you will notice that Carrington has a button to take you to her very own blog. You can get regular updates there in case I fall behind here.

Carrington is finally tolerating some feeds. Only 10cc per hour, but it's way better than what she's had for a long while. She did lose half a pound since she was admitted, but didn't lose any more last night. She didn't gain either, but not losing is still a really big deal at this point.

Please continue to pray for the family. I can tell you from personal experience how difficult it is to finally get your child out of institutional care only to find them right back in institutional care, however much nicer it is. It's time for them to be together as a family, adjusting to their new normal, getting to know each other, but no. That's the goal and it's just out of reach. Frustrating.
