From Calvin

I wanted to give the boys a chance to write some of their thoughts to their new sibling. This is Calvin's first letter to his new brother or sister. Calvin turns 7 this coming Saturday. He is the oldest of our clan. He has been home from Kazakhstan since October 2006. He has a big heart and lots of love. I love this oldest son of ours so much - he has been the loudest and longest proponent of adding to our family! He gave me permission to share this.

To my new brother or sister:

I am having fun at home. I really want to meet you. I want you to know that I will teach you soccer. Patrick and Titus are my brothers - they are boys. We always make tents in our house. If you never saw a tv, you might like tv. Sometimes some of our aunts and uncles give us fake mustaches and sometimes we wear them. Titus is always silly to me.

I love you. I can't wait to see you. I want to see your face. I want you to learn about God. Please can you love me a lot?
