Wednesday's Child

Thomas and Armando Take It To The Ice!

Thomas (1997) and Armando (1999) are a pair of sports-minded brothers who enjoy outdoor activities, including street hockey.  But when it came to taking in from the streets into a rink, it turns out that both boys had seen ice hockey on television but had never attended a hockey match.  So it was off to the Staples Center where we first met up hockey veteran and Los Angeles Kings announcer Daryl Evans for a pre-match inside-look at a typical work-day for a hockey player.

Thomas and Armando are easy-going and adventurous youth who did not hesitate putting on skates, hitting the ice and even learning how to fall.  As we watched Thomas and Armando take in the lessons on how to maneuver on the ice, we recognized the parallel to lessons in maneuvering through life – how to stand, move forward, stop … and yes, how to minimize the "hurt" and then get back when you stumble and fall.

Both Thomas and Armando gravitate towards taking the lead on things, which at times heightens the normal sibling rivalry between them.  The one thing they both want to gain together, though, is a permanent family whose members can help them maneuver forward through life.

    This week's Wednesday's Child is another sample of just how strong the human spirit is even in the earliest stages. Samajai (2012) has been negotiating many medical issues since his beginning, including Intrauterine Growth Restriction, Microcephaly, Goldenhar Syndrome, an ear anomaly, hypospadius, a ventricular septal defect, a cleft palate and a rib/sternum anomaly.

    This week we want to make a federal case for Joseph (1998) finding a forever family, so we obtained the necessary clearances to accompany Joseph to the Los Angeles Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). And during our friendly investigation, we found Joseph to be a dynamic teen with a good bit of focus and determination for someone his age.

    Los Angeles used to be a major venue for championship boxing. From the 1930s through the 1970s, there were prize fights nearly every night in metropolitan Los Angeles, primarily at the Olympic Auditorium in Downtown Los Angeles.

    Khalid & Ah'Niyah Want To Go Back To School, And A Forever Home

    Thursday, August 7 2014 1:00 AM EDT2014-08-07 05:00:12 GMT
    We're in the hazy days of August and soon it will be back-to-school for many children… or the very first day of school for kids like Khalid (2009), who will be starting kindergarten soon. But before he heads off to school, we swooped up Khalid and his baby sister Ah'Niyah (2011) for a day of fun and play at Pelican Pier at Shoreline Village in Long Beach, California.
