My Durant

I still remember a few years ago feeling like my son was in Ethiopia.  Nikki already knew and was waiting for me to figure it out.  As we filled out papers and waited for this young man to come into our home we had the idea that he was more than a little boy.  With him was going to come a brand new life.  My friend, Doug, called this boy "my inheritance."  That has been true so far.

Durant Natnael turned six today!  He has gone from a quiet, little boy to now a hilarious little man.  He brings so much joy to my life.

Today Nikki got him donuts for breakfast and since school started late with the rain, she took him to get a treat at the gas station after dropping Ana at school.  Do you think he was excited?

You be the judge.


  1. That's the Durant I know and love:)

    p.s. I think he was excited:)

  2. He is probably the cutest in the world.

  3. He's an awesome little man! but did you say late for school due to rain??

  4. Yes Pete. I live in Louisville. We go to school two hours late for rain.
