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!

Theo, then and now.

This blog started as an adoption blog back in early 2010. I've been fumbling around with it for the past year or so since we arrived home with Theo and Zhen. They are part of our family now so I like to include them on our family blog, Ralph and the Crew.

I'm not quite sure what this blog wants to be anymore.

While I'm trying to decide what to do with this space, I'll leave you with a short video of my Theo. He's going to walk. He's getting it! Remember this kid?

He could barely hold his head up then. Well, look at him now!!

And no, my kids never wear clothes. Oh wait, that's clean laundry that's getting folded, so I guess they do! ha!


  1. Thank goodness he gets to grow and walk and love and be loved! What a beautiful boy!

  2. That is awesome and a true reason why people should adopt really..

  3. Precious! He's come SOO far!!! Amazing what a FAMILY can do!


  4. it really is amazing watching these little ones blossom and flourish. I too was working on two blogs and this month bit the bullet and had my adoption blog exported over to the other.(was easy click on export then import on the other blog) I just labeled/tagged all the posts related to the adoption and made a tab at the top of the page about it all. I hated to do it since I had followers etc. But I have to focus on what is REALLY important and keeping up with both was becoming a challenge.

  5. Precious! Great job with him, Momma! :)
