Taya and her blankie :) Benji in his parka ;)

We gave Taya her blankie today. She kept taking her too cute tongue out and feeling it . So sweet. She has a tongue that would make Gene Simmons envious ;) Then she would stroke the minkie fabric with her little bent fingers :) Oh so sweet. She loves my iphone, she rests herr face on the phone and just listens to the music. She walked to us today again, holding her caregivers hand but she did it :)

Benji ran and greeted us with cheers of "mama , papa!" He was wearing a tshirt, a turtleneck, and a sherpa parka inside :) he was very sweet today, no table tossing :) we played with a sticker book and looked at magazines.

So tired of hanging out in this dingy room, listening to little ones cry :(  These children ALL DESERVE to have mommys coming for them. They need hope and love .

Oh sweetness in those pics!

You made me burst out in laughter when I read the envious comment about the tongue of Gene Simmons. Too funny.

Taya and Stas could have a tongue contest!!!

That sound of crying kids can really get to you. Towards the end I just couldn't take it anymore....keep praying and will pray for you both.

Oh Maria, they are stunningly gorgeous! And that bow on Taya is quite deceiving because it looks alot bigger than it really is. She is so tiny. Bless her little heart.

Hi Maria,

I wrote you on Facebook September 29th and didn't get a reply. I haven't ever received the t-shirt I won in July. Did you order it?? Thank you, Cheryl
