When we got the boys home we had pretty good evidence that Isaiah's birth date was fairly accurate. It became pretty apparent in those first few months, however, that Nahome's was not. We had some pretty solid evidence pointing at a much younger age than his paperwork said. Documentation that is hard to deny, when put up against some person sitting at a desk taking a shoot in the dark as to how old and when his birthday should be. So we decided to see if we could use this evidence to move his birth date to a more appropriate age for him - developmentally, physically, maturity - it just made sense.
So - I'm writing to tell you that we received signed documentation from the judge that Nahome's new birth date has been approved. The evidence led us to July and we chose the 7th day of the month - we liked that his birth date would be 7-7....God's number! The kicker is that this change makes him five once again - instead of almost 7! When we talked with Nahome about it he was a little confused....but once we told him he got to have FUN summer birthdays and he is the only kid probably anywhere that gets to have TWO six-year old birthday parties he was all smiles and giggles!!
So - we no longer have TWINS in the family - just a brother and sister who have grown so very close over the last year! I am thankful for them and the joy they find in the little things of life!
