Transformation Tuesday: Miles

Do you recognize this teeny little treasure?

We've watched Miles' transformation from tiny twelve-day-old baby to happy, confident preschooler over these past two years.  The picture above is one of the first pictures that we have of him, and these are from his first days here in the Foster Home:

Feeding a baby with a special smile like Miles' is more challenging than normal, and our nannies do such a great job.  Miles ('Gabriel' as he was then known) won their hearts right from the beginning.

In fact, he won everyone's hearts, with his light-up-the-room smile and determined personality.

What a joy to watch this sweet boy grow and develop...

He was able to have his first ENT surgery when he was six months old, and the second one later that year.  The surgeon did a great job and he healed up nicely.

Such a handsome boy!

This past year, Miles has been living with a local foster family; he is their first foster-child, and it has worked out beautifully.  Miles and his foster-mama, Lisa, have a special bond.

Miles started coming to afternoon preschool once he turned two, and is a delight to his teachers.

It's always a little hard to say goodbye to precious little ones that we've watched turn into 'big kids', but we're jumping for joy - Miles is going to join his forever family soon!
