We have been blessed with the most beautiful boy! The first two weeks were tough and the adjustment was big for all three of us. But around 21 days after Roux joined our family, everything just fell into place. His presence brought more joy and laughter into our lives than we ever could have imagined. We never realized how much we longed for him until we found him.
He is at that age where he imitates everything he sees and hears. From covering our dogs with blankets at night (as he sees us doing it) to singing along to the radio. When he wakes up in the morning and he smiles at us with his two big teeth and dimples, we can’t help but forget all about our sleepless night and fall in love with him all over again.
He recently started walking (a week after his first birthday) and then he applauds himself very excitedly every time he manages a few steps. He loves being outdoors and around other people. We realized very quickly that people (friends and family) don’t really notice us anymore, because his cuteness and high energy levels take centre stage. But we welcome it, because we appreciate the moments of rest when someone else entertains him for a few minutes.
It is the most indescribable feeling when he stretches out his arms towards you and says “mamma”. In those moments we are overwhelmed with emotion and we realize he is the greatest gift we have ever received.
Thank you PROCARE for making this happen!
