Our View on Adoption

Adoption is a wonderful metaphor for our salvation in Jesus. We are all adopted sons and daughters of God, brought fully into His family and loved unconditionally. We hope and pray that we honor God in this journey and come to know more deeply the depth of His love and our true identity in Him through this awesome experience.

"I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." 2 COR 6:18

Diary - Saturday March 13

First full day with Johan Mateo:

Saturday, March 13

He is calm and has a soft spirit. He still avoid us with his eyes today, but with work and giggles he starts looking to us and smiling.

This was a “get to know each other” day. We went to the park and had fresa ice cream. Johan Mateo enjoyed it a lot!!! Ate all the ice cream. He is very petite but eats a lot.

Gisele is doing wonderful, her transition is mainly related with obsessively wearing her monkeys pajamas or her Cinderella dress. Otherwise she is a little helper, especially with changing the diaper (more than Papi) and preparing the bottle.

He likes to feed himself. We gave him a Mickey Mouse plate with 2 plastic spoons and he really enjoys playing with them. Spits out the plantains, papa. Loves eggs with ham and queso. We got him a sippy cup with 2 handles and he drinks water constantly.

Camila is playing very well with a pushing car and he loves her. He smiles at her and is getting warmer with her. He likes his space though …..not to close….

Today was abuelita’s 65th birthday, and what a great present to have him.

For bath time he does not like bubbles or the tub. Brushing his teeth is a nightmare.
I am trying to let him hold and play with the toothbrush but he rejects it completely. I will try the finger one latter.
