Here it is. All is going well. She is a doll! She has a lot of energy!! :) She is very resiliant. You can tell that she has had to be strong and survive. She was very excited to see us. She showed us the pictures in her book and showed us each one by one. She is very happy to have a BIG family. She did get a bit overwhelmed and hit me once. Our GOTCHA was a little crazy...13 families...13 children...one room. At one point she pointed to her bottomand said somthing I did not understand, but I quickly figured out she needed to go to the bathroom. Squatty potty...quite funny!! No toilet paper, just a couple shakes. As we left the bathroom I picked her up and she kissed my cheek. Heaven!
When we left to get on the bus she did very well. She grabed my hand right away. She was very good about minding us.
We took her to McDonald's. As we went to leave it was cold and I wanted her to put on her hat, but she did not want to. I did not want to force her. We were walking up the stairs and I looked at her and said, "McDonald's"....she looked at me and smiled the greatest smile I've ever seen in my life! She knew what she wanted right away! She pointed to fries first, then hamberger, then ice cream!!! When we left McDonald's she wanted her gloves and hat...and SCARF! I think she was cold on the way there. :)
She has attached to Brad a bit more and is sad that he is not in the room right now. She is packing up all her things and I expect she will make a break for the door that BaBa (daddy) went out.
I must get in on the balloon fight that is taking place...
Thank you for your prayers. We have seen and felt God all over this girl!!
