One month home.......


we've been home a bit over a month now and it still seems like a dream! She is smart, funny and stubborn! She loves music, her brothers and crayons. She came to me not knowing how to chew- she eats pizza now. She had no idea what to do with a ball- now she can shoot a basketball.......she is amazing. I think about what this little girl- this baby- has gone through in her little life- the loss, the change and I am in awe of her bravery. At one day old she survived the loss of her birth family. At just under 2 years old she survived the loss of the only home she had ever known. 2 weeks later she traveled half way around the world with a women who she did not know and did not understand- and survived. She is blossoming. She is full of life and clearly wants to experience every moment.........I'm having to remind myself to slow down...there is no rush......she is home.
