Watching Cav

I have had a ton of questions about Cav.  Also since we are jsut weeks out from his amputation surgery I wanted to document his before movement.  Remeber this kid who was terrified of plants when we received him, and had probably been outside TWICE in his entire 3 years in China.

I can partially understand keeping inside - he started the day with completely intact pants!  Goodwill LOVES us as his pants last one maybe two times.  I guess it cuts down on laundry LOL!

I wanted to share for those who might be contemplating a child with significant limb difference.  We believe he will do phenomenal once he has his new legs (and shoes LOL!)  As a matter of fact my other little guy in the video has dwarfism so really . . . so much for disabilities!


  1. Oh My..he reminds me so much of my daughter. She had bilateral through the knee. It was amazing what she could do before surgery and we continue to be amazed every day.
    We are lucky families! Godspeed to recovery..

  2. Wow! Wow! Wow! I simply cannot believe how *abled* he is!! What an absolute blessing!!

  3. Truly amazing how people adapt and can do everything that everyone else can do! I like the expression "Not disability simply different ability". Totally true!

  4. Amazing! They are both absolutely adorable. Do you have video showcasing their language skills? I'm pretty sure Luke has some significant language issues, but it would be great to see how children similar ages adopted at the same time are doing.
