Tim's Summer

Bryan was adopted to Sweden and much to my surprise he got his best friend Tim's name.  Tim then got the new name Kristian and he went to Denmark.  On the map they are close together.   Joseph's whose new name is Milo also lives in Sweden. I was just so pleased that they all got together over the summer.  All three of my cleft lip and palate boys. Here is the letter of all Tim's adventure over the summer.  Thank you so much Karina.

Now Tim has been with us in Sweden for one and a half year and this summer has been very good for us. We have had a 10 weeks long holiday together and we have done a lot of fun.  Walking in the mountains (Tim was sometimes carried), bathing in lakes and see, playing at amusement parks and visiting friends and relatives.
We have also been to Denmark to meet Kristian from Starfish and his family. Tim and Kristian recognized each other and had a very happy day together. Some weeks later we had a visit from another friend from Starfish foster home. It was Milo and his parents who came to Mora for some days. Tim and Milo played and had a lot of fun together.
It also has been a good summer because Tim finally has good hearing in both ears. He had a small operation of his ears in the spring. It went good and now he hears well in both ears and this summer he has started to talk a lot.
No it is autumn here in Sweden and for a week ago Tim began to spend some days a week with a child-minder. The woman takes care of five children and Tim likes to be with here and play with the children.

Life, love and laughter,

At Starfish, we have taken care of 150 children to date, arranged more than 175 surgeries and had 67 international adoptions, so our little starfishes live all over the globe: the US, Netherlands, Norway, France, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Canada, Australia and in China. Our latest adoption, Olivia, will be living in Florida with her family with two older brothers.  We currently have 48 babies under the age of 3 and a half at the foster home.  We have just added four boys from the Xian orphanage, Malcolm,Trevor, Jonathan and Peter.

We are currently preparing for a medical team from Australia to do a medical trip starting September 26th and help 20 babies with cleft lip and palate surgeries.
