Libby is what we call a "high needs" child. She is strong willed, hard headed, bossy and the most independent / dependent child I have ever met. Basically she is her mother's daughter!
I find it incredibly tricky to keep the fine balance between teaching her how to control her personality and crushing her little spirit. She has characteristics that as an adult will make a fine leader, but for a toddler may get her killed first!

Gabriel has been our angel baby. Now that he is seven going on 17 he has developed quite the attitude.He has a very tender heart and for the most part is a good boy. He has cerebral palsy from a lack of oxygen at birth. This mostly shows in a severe delay in speech and he is considered mentally handicapped. Physically he is great. We have been very blessed that his condition is not a whole lot worse than it is.
