Dora the Explorer gets hearing aids & Norah rocks the LWB Blog.

Norah had a surprise waiting for her when she got home yesterday. My Mom sent Norah a birthday gift for her fourth birthday. When Norah and I walked into the house and Norah saw Dora standing on the table she threw up her arms and ran to it. I helped her get it out of the box and signed to her that "Your doll looks a lot like you." Norah shook her hand yes with a smile on her face, then the smile turned into the look she gets when she is questioning something, and she pointed to her ears and then to Dora's ears.

Lori came in to help me give Dora a make over. With the help of a sharpie Dora got her first set of hearing aids.
It was very nice of my mom to send Norah presents. She is a busy woman that raised 5 kids then adopted two more boys after we all left home that are now Brandon's age.
Thanks MOM

Also Norah made the Love Without Boundaries blog. Love Without Boundaries did so much for our little girl, and my family owes them a great deal of credit for Norah's transition into our family. We can see in Norah that she was well loved and cared for by her LWB foster family and the team that worked with her in China. All of that starts with donations.
I never forget that there people out there who supported LWB through the years and gave me the chance to be a father again, to a child that has a way of brightening up not just my life, but the lives of everyone she comes in contact with.

Thanks Nancy. I printed this off it will make a wonderful keepsake for our family!

LWB, thank you for the excellent care you provided for Norah our sweet sweet granddaughter. Also I love the Native American Doll I bought from you auction. May many more children receive the gift of healing you provide. CW
