Our girl has been with us for one month. Hard to believe sometimes, as she seems so comfortable in our lives but yet we learn new things everyday. We still having bonding to do and work on trusting each other. She loves her family and home, she really doesn't like to leave. We are also working on that aspect of life. You can't live your whole life in your house.
Hannah is a terrific big sister. She has patience and understanding of the whole process. There are days that Claire doesn't want Hannah to touch her and those are still hard for a 10 yr old to understand. It helps that she still rejects me from time to time. Never Dad.
We are awaiting a visit from my sister and her 4 children. Hannah and the cousins have always been so close. I can't wait to see Claire in the middle of things. Their ages (including Hannah) are stair-stepped from 14 to 6, now Claire will soon be 2 and able to hold her own with everyone else.
We are going to eat Chinese food for the first time since returning from China, tomorrow, on the DATE that Claire was handed over. Hannah also got an excellent progress report, so we will be celebrating that too.
Thanks for stopping by
