We thank God for the wonderful helper He has provided in Julia. She is very good with Isaiah, and he really loves her. I think he'll be so disappointed when he realizes that she's getting married in March! :)
This year Julia has been able to come about once a week to stay with Isaiah. They go for long walks in the park and eat lunch together and play together while I study or go to a lesson or to the grocery store. It's great to have some concentrated study time for me and some regular Russian conversation for Isaiah. He really seems to understand her quite well!
