Wheels

Looking out the window for C.J. who is waiting for his bus.

Shooting hoops with C.J.

Loving his new wheels.

Thanks to our friends the Ladniers, Adam has a new set of wheels. We are borrowing their daughter's wheel chair from when she was three. At first he was afraid of it. Now he LOVES it. His perspective has changed. He used to crawl all over our house. Now he can sit up and see so many new things. The other day he wheeled up to every window just to check out the view from each side of our house. I watched him go from window to window to see what was out there just because he could. He can also go down to the cul-de-sac where the basketball goal is. He really enjoyed being out there and able to move himself wherever he wanted. Our next purchase will be a shorter goal so he can make the shot.

He loves to be outside just like the rest of our kids. The weather this weekend in Charlotte was beautiful. He spent many hours out with the neighborhood kids. They were playing capture the flag. All the kids have really been sweet trying to find a way for him to play too.

Adam is such an easy going child. He is happy no matter where he is or what he is doing. He is such a pleasure to be around. The only time he gets upset is when his siblings have to leave. He cries for 20 minutes each time someone leaves. The picture at the top is of him looking out at C.J. as C.J. waits for the bus. He wheeled himself over to the window as he cried for his brother. He loves his brothers and sisters so so much!

Today we will take him to our church for the first time. We are looking forward to that. Next week he sees the neurologist and the orthopedic doctor. I post an update on what we find out.
Until then, have a great Sunday!

Blessings to you!
