Anton is doing GREAT! He is so smart and can already sign more, please, and help. I took a video of Jason coming home today and then Anton signing. ENJOY!!!



I am working on a FAQ post so if you have any questions ask away!

Anton is so beautiful!! Loved seeing his reaction to his Daddy coming home. Congratulations on your new addition, Delgado family!!

My question would be, do you plan to retain some of Anton's cultural heritage in his life? How do you plan to do this? What ideas do you have for preserving some of this, if you do plan to do so?

Please keep posting lovely pictures & videos - he has a smile to light up the entire world!

That is absolutely amazing!! Anton is absolutely amazing! I'm so happy he is part of your family! And I can't tell you how much I love that he and Judah share a birthday. :)

How have Kenya and Judah reacted to having Anton home?

Hi,

I recently found your blog through some of the EB families blogs (Bella's Blessings and Before the Morning). I thank God that He provided parents and a family through you for Anton--he's going to be so loved and is so loved already! He's such a smart little man, and I'm so happy he has a home.

I have a question! I follow Jonah's blog and I am wondering why Anton's hands are not bandaged in such a way that his fingers can move or be separated from one another? Seems like this type of bandaging might promote webbing in the long run versus separating the fingers. Just curious :) Thanks, and I am SO happy Anton is home with you!

Are you getting help paying for bandages? I am praying for you all and little Anton. Such sweetness here.

I learned about your journey when you spent time with Patrice learning to care for a child with EB. I'm so happy Anton is finally home with his family where he belongs. Ya'll were blessed to have found each other.
I was wondering if his hands and feet will always have to be bandaged? Will he be able to walk one day?

He is so cute and so smart!! I am so excited for you all!!!

I have a couple of questions for your FAQ...will you be able to unwrap his fingers at some point? Does he speak English? How are the other kids adjusting to their new brother?

So happy to see Anton home with such a great family. Thank you for keeping us updated! Will he be able to have his fingers unwrapped or is the concern that he would cause too much damage to himself?

He is too cute!! We use sign language for my daughter too...along with talking...and I love that we can understand eachother easier.

My questions: How severe is Anton's EB? What is his routine on bandage changes...do you have to do them daily? How is everyone adjusting to him finally being home?

Hazel said...

Will you be making your adoption blog public again at all?

in every picture of your family you could really see the love that flow between you all, even though i dont agree with everything you say you truly are an inspiration to good parenting and a loving relationship!

I found you through Patrice's blog and am overjoyed that Anton is finally in your home! I saw this video yesterday and have been thinking about him and how he seems to already be thriving in your care. Congratulations and I can't wait to continue to see how Anton does with your love!!! Thank you for allowing strangers to be a part of this and to allow us to become better people just because of you.

So happy for you guys!!! I have many, many questions, but I will stick to a couple:

1. How is he taking his transition away from his nanny (praise the Lord he had a steady, loving caregiver with whom to form a strong attachment in his first couples of years of life, thus preparing him for the wonders of a loving family life!)?
2. Are you planning on doing the BMT in the long run?

My heart is so full of joy for your family!!
