The kids have been together for almost 5 years now....They have gone from...not knowing each other...to being totally jealous of each other....to hating each other....to really starting to care for one another. It has been a transformation that Joel and I knew would happen over time...but is more rewarding to see then we ever thought it would be. Haley and Brenden love having a "big" brother. As you can see in the picture they simply adore climbing all over him. A few years ago this would have really made Thomas mad...but now...he really enjoys hanging out with them when they come over:-) Building a family isn't easy....and these little moments mean more then anything:-) I love these guys!!!
