Im a Thief

OKAY OKAY! I stole this picture off of Melissa's blog, cuz I just HAD to have it! It is thee funniest cutest thing ever!!! This is why I love Jaman so much- cuz he is just hilarious!

It was raining the other day and he wanted to go outside, so he found and empty box and put it on his head. I love it because you know he's not doing it to be goofy or anything. It just seems so normal for him to put a box on his head to protect him from the elements, like its a hat or an umbrella or something. And I love that he's SO oblivious to the fact that they took a picture of him. ...."I'm just standing in the rain with a box on my head and this is sooo normal."


And may I just say while I'm at it, how much I love Curry and Melissa. They are so amazing. They adopted Jaman from Ghana a year ago and have already made the biggest difference in this 8 year old's life. For those of you who don't know, Curry has a non profit organization- Signs of Hope International- that takes interns to Ghana to teach sign language in deaf schools, and that helps raise money so that more deaf children can even GO to school. Jaman was a student in one of the schools and Curry and Melissa met him while they were over there and knew they should adopt him. They have been AMAZING with him. He has learned so much from them and they've just given him all their love. I love knowing Jaman, he makes me so happy. He LOVES pizza and can often be seen signing 'pizza' to his imaginary friends. He also LOVES to talk on the phone and it is thee FUNNIEST thing ever! "Buh buh buh buh buh buh buh - oy yoy yoy yoy yoy" is a normal conversation to have on the phone with him.

They now have a foster child, 5 year old Elizabeth, living with them who is also deaf and she is the cutest little sweet thing! If you could all just see how good and loving they are with her you would you understand how great they are.

I love that they are taking the time with these kids to give them the love they deserve and need. And to help teach them and do whatever they can for them. They are the greatest friends and I love them TONS!!!!!!!!!

So precious! They sound amazing. Makes me want to be a better person. Maybe someday:) ADORABLE BOY!! I hope he never loses that ablity to feel normal with a box on his head- or do anything that prevents him from being uncomfortable even if it seems a little wierd to most people:)
