Who would have guessed?

Well, we have celebrated Troy's 10th birthday and his first Thanksgiving. His english is amazing. He is adjusting so well. It's like he has always been here. We are proud of all of our kids for making him feel so welcome. We put up the Christmas tree and decorations and his eyes nearly popped out of his head. He just ran around smiling. Some things you just can't buy. I am grateful that there was room for one more at our "Inn". All of those of you who supported us should feel a smile in your hearts. Happy Holidays.

And they lived happily ever after......

Troy's adjustment has been amazing. He is loving being here. He's his Mommy's boy and Daddy's too. He is loved by his siblings. Our daughter Krista stayed with her two kids until Troy arrived from Ukraine. My two year old grandson ran around calling for "Uncle Troy". I am very surprised at how quickly he is picking up English. We have very little difficulty communicating. He must have my brains. That's okay - I wasn't using them anyway.
The only thing he didn't like was Primary class and Dave took him kicking and screaming. Once he realized he was safe he was fine. He's already started school and had fun with Halloween parties. This Friday is his 10th birthday. His best friend adopted from Ukraine by the Reynolds is coming to visit. It's great he already has a best friend. Troy has a great sense of humor and keeps us laughing. Dave said we had to fight for Dmytro because he is one of the good ones. He's right.
