That was just too cool!

Barb & Jeff brought Carlton over for a visit. It was so cool to have the boys together again. They haven't seen each other in about 2 months. Dylan kept wacking Carlton in the head and Carlton just looked at him like "Oh, it's you again". Carlton is absolutely beautiful and has a fantastic personality. I was showing off how to cut Carlton's fingernails and ended up cutting his little thumb. I felt horrible! It was so wonderful to see them with Carlton. You can tell they are amazing parents. Barb has to demand that Jeff gives him up so she can get some baby kisses. They also brought us coffee from Guatemala (super yum) and a letter from Dylan's foster Mom. I won't go into details but I will say that we were very touched at how much his foster family loves Dylan. I'm so glad that Dylan and Carlton will grow up together. The vice-principal of Dylan's school has a brother who was adopted from Colombia. Her mother and her friend went to Columbia and they each adopted a little boy (who were in the same orphanage together). They are still friends today and are about to be best man in each other's wedding. How cool is that?


  1. Very cool!
    Sorry about Carlton's thumb, you mean ol aunt Julie! LOL

  2. Carlton is still worn out from playing with Dylan. He slept through part of dinner, all night and just went back down for a nap!

    It was wonderful to see the boys together!!! I have no doubt they are going to be life-long friends!

    His little thumb is perfectly fine!!! We are just happy that Aunt Julie broke us in with the nail clipping since I've been too chicken to do it!

  3. That's fantastic that the boys will always have that connection!

    Must have also been wonderful to receive the letter from Dylan's foster family.

    Very cool that you are still in contact with Dylan's foster mom. I hope that will be the case for me too. It is more than amazing that Dylan and Carlton were in the same foster house and you and Barb live close enough to eachother to see eachother often. Just awesome. Thanks for telling me to pack early. It has taken me all day and I'm still NOT done. I thought it would be a 2 hour job--- how WRONG I was! Thanks for looking out for me.
