Join us this year as we travel to Bulgaria to bring 3 children home to make our forever family complete. We look forward to what the future will hold for the dozen of us as a family. We are taking the road less travelled and it has many beautiful twists & turns along the way. Join us as we discover them together on this amazing journey to bring 3 children from an orphanage and make them forever part of the Boyd Bunch.

Blast from the past
Getting busy again this week. Alyona had her MRI today. Warren took her to work with him and then to the MRI at Duke. We'll know next week if it is nothing, CSF leak or retethering of her cord when they did the spinal fusion surgery. Vet cancelled for tomorrow and Reni & Nik's field trip also got cancelled. However Bojan's prosthetist comes tomorrow afternoon to fit the new check socket. Keeping fingers crossed everything fits well. Having issues w/ insurance still on implants and speech therapy. Apparently, since the new health care changes along w/ new systems changes, BCBS is literally months behind. On the upside, Advanced Bionics did suspend drafting our account for the time being. Umm, they were drafting nearly 1,000 a month! Don't ask. We are owed money but who knows when we will see it at this point. Just been trying to tie up many loose ends this week. It's tedious but necessary.
So, ready to do a blast from the past as I haven't done it for awhile. Here goes nothing.
Warren and Bojan celebrating birthdays in 2006.
Alex doing some equine therapy in 2006.
Our beloved Bear from 2010.
Some of Nik's early artwork from 2010.
This was an almost weekly occurence. Nik hated his hearing aids SO much, he would literally throw them in the woods. We'd have to hunt for them. Think needle in a haystack. It was horrible. What was worse, the center we go to didn't seem to believe this to be true. You could tell by the look of doubt. Well, FASers don't always think remember. We'd even search w/ the metal detectors. One of the hearing aids we never ever found. In those leaves somewhere. Glad that's over! During this year in 2010, he was down to one hearing aid. He got his other implant that year. Now, he never wants to take them off. What a difference.
Warren will not like this picture. Not shaven or anything but the look on his face says it all. Alyona and her daddy. March 2010.
Max, the birthday boy in March. This was March of 2011.
Bojan and Max goofing around. To think Bojan is almost taller than Max now. Crazy. This also was March of 2011.
This was the hardest part last year.....not being able to share pictures of Sofie till everything was final. Trust me, there are many pictures to catch up with. And still many I can't share to this day since houseguest is no longer with us. But this is Sofie last March of 2013. At soccer practice.
Summer with her long hair. We were at a homeschool outing. March of 2013.
The silly girls from last year, minus two of them. Just goofing off. March 2013.
Sofie used to love this. Max would carry her around in a box. She thought it was cool and would laugh the whole time. March of 2013.
Memory lane. So many of them. Hope you enjoyed this quick blast from the past. More to come. Working on a Sofie post.
