What a difference a year makes!







she lit up the room with her smile- she was nervous, so were we. She took a leap of faith and trusted us. We loved her without hesitation-



One year ago today Princess E.:



could not feed herself



had not had solid food



was a "wobbly" walker



did not speak any language



did not know what to do with a ball



could not swim



could not pick up small objects



had not seen a bike



could not dress herself



did not play with other children









one year later she:



eats with gusto!



eats nearly whatever you put in front of her



runs to get from A to B



Never. stops. talking. ever.



keeps up with her brothers on the soccer field



swims like a fish



laces beads on string



rides a scooter as fast as any other almost 3 year old I know!



dresses herself (many times a day)



had many friends, knows them by name and plays nonstop until they go home!






My baby has come a long way- I am so proud of all that she has accomplished- it was a tough year for her and she has gotten through it with so much grace- she is such a brave little girl- so trusting, so full of love- she has her mama and daddy wrapped around her little finger....her brothers too! I'm excited to see what the next year has in store for all of us- no doubt it will be full of surprises!

Congrats on the 1 year mark. Can you believe the difference a loving home can make? We think of you often.

Oh gosh now I am crying. I love the picture of all three on the edge of the pool. Love X's hair long and shaggy!

What a wonderful transformation for E and I loved how you described it. I am sure it has been amazing to watch a child blossom like that. Life is good.
