Griggs has a new diagnosis...

When we first saw Griggs' file from China,
we wondered about his diagnosis 
"pygmyism" ???
What is that??

Some people told us they must mean it's a form a dwarfism,
so we went with that..
knowing that this may or may not be the case.


Well, after Genetic testing - 
this is NOT the case. 

The Genetic doc is thinking that Griggs' 
incredible body was formed 
like this be the use of medications
that a pregnant woman should not take.


Can I say, "Thank God for the FDA!"
But China doesn't have the FDA.

Our doc is very concerned about Griggs' organs,
thinking the deformations may also be internal.


We are presently waiting for word from the hospital 
as to when we can get Griggs in for a echocardiogram,
the first of many tests to come. 


If the doc is correct and Griggs has the syndrome that he suspects,
  there could be some major problems with his 
heart and kidneys. 
(I know that I should have caught the name of the syndrome,
but I was in complete shock and just 
wanted to sit and hold my baby!)


We find our hope in our Lord God!
And our peace in that HE created Griggs
and is not surprised by this new information.

To everyone of you who donated to our adoption fee's,
who prayed for us to get our boys home,
and to y'all who encouraged us along the way!
Thank you!
We are soooo thankful our boys are home 
and we can get them the medical care that they would
not have had in China,
not to mention -
we get to love on them e.v.e.r.y. single day!!!
