Don’t give up. Don’t you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. You keep your chin up. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of... Jesus Christ, they come. -Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
In January 2008, my new friend, Charissa, adopted her adorable daughter, Ava, in Artemovsk, Ukraine. While she was there she took these pictures of my son, Keith.
Can you see Keith reaching for Ava's hat strings? That's SO like Keith, who loves playing with his cords. ;o) Now, contrast these pictures with more recent ones. I can already see a difference! Plus, he's gained two pounds already! Woo-hoo! If nothing else - look at how happy he is now! :o)
My friend, Carrie, sent this shirt for Keith. If you can't see it very clearly, it says: "My dad is my hero." This seems to fit in so many ways. Thanks for the shirt, Carrie!
