Warrior's Jersey #23 from NBA Legend Slam Dunk Champion Jason Richardson

My son, Joshua, is rooting and cheering for the Warriors. Game 7 is just around the corner. We're glad that #23 Draymond Green is playing and that Steph Curry won't be suspended for throwing his mouthpiece into the crowd. (Well, he did apologize!)

Anyway, I have a picture here of a Warriors jersey that is framed... No it doesn't belong to Green. It belongs to the two-time slam dunk champion warrior, Jason Richardson. 

It's a beauty. It inspires. I bought it at a church fund raiser. Now, I'm selling it to raise funds also for our foundation that will benefit Operation Blessing's medical missions. 

It's still for sale at PhP 8,877 or US$188.88 plus delivery cost.  Payable via PayPal through

"Uncle" Joshua

"Uncle" Joshua and Hansy Boy Linsangan.
Joshua enjoyed playing host to Mark and Hazel Linsangan and Cristina Belo Linsangan the past two days. The weather was wonderful and we all had a relaxing time.

The kind of stuff every Dad wants to hear

Yesterday was a heartwarming day for me.
Got home at 8pm and had dinner with my son.
Joshua asked me as we were washing hands,
"Dad, where did you come from?"

"Oh, I had to go to the office and clean up stuff, meet people, throw garbage (clear my desk), get stuff from the condo, buy your medicine, and do lots of other stuff..."

"Oh, Dad. You're kind."

What did I do to deserve this kind of kid! Thank You Lord :-)

After a long, long roller-coaster kind of ride, we finally got a letter in the mail from the court that our Joshy Boy is finally and legally, our son:
Joshua Isaac Linsangan Roberto.

Our journey to get Joshua's adoption papers is a unique one, I should say. Others had a much easier time. But the trips to the city hall, the wait, the expense is all definitely worth it! Basically, this replaces the trips to the OB and the expenses that one would have paid to doctors and hospitals for childbirth.

So, Thank You Lord!

Babies spend a lot of time sleeping.
And so, naturally, we -- parents (whether adoptive or natural) spend a lot of time putting, coercing, lulling our babies to sleep.
Joshua is an easy sleeper.
After he burps, he's on his way to sleep land.
Tingting and I were supposed to go for a walk in the park after our bible study, but on our way out, Joshua woke up.
We must have spent the last hour and a half putting him back to sleep.
A bottle and some tossing and turning (on Josh's part) -- he's back to sleep.
Blogging about parenting -- like putting babies to sleep--is a lot like the Seinfeld show. To many, it seems like a "show about nothing."
But to me, it's about almost everything.
Good night.

My son is growing really fast

There's this great invention that enables you to carry your baby on a sling. Here it is pictured above. My son, Joshua, could hardly fit in it. I bought this about three weeks ago. It's supposed to fit babies from 8 months to 12 months old, but Josh's thighs are so big that he can hardly fit into it.
So I took some quick pictures before we saved the sling for our next baby (perhaps). My Swato and I are finally doing som family planning. If it still doesn't come naturally, then we're going to adopt again.
Josh is such an ALF. That's what my Swato calls him.
Adorable Little Fellow.
