This girl has been home, with us, for exactly two months today!
She has been through so much is these two months: Leaving the country she was born in, a new language, new parents, a major surgery, and copious doctor’s visits. These things have overwhelmed me, so what must she be feeling and thinking? I would want to curl into a ball. She has been through way more transitions and scary things in two years than most people have to go through in a lifetime.
But she still smiles and claps her hands when we get in the car to go somewhere…even though she doesn’t know where we are going, or if it will be painful. And she is always happy to come back home. She makes us smile and laugh with her excitement over every new thing, even if it is a small thing. We love watching her take in every new experience with joy and awe, it is so fun to see her happy, and I love that she has chosen joy.
Happy two months, little M! We love you!
