We are on the eve of a big first. Bella's first birthday home. Bella Zenash will be 3 tomorrow. Tomorrow is also the first day we saw our sweet girls face. A year ago we got her referral. She has been home for almost 6 months.
Here are some other firsts:
First time she has been sick...double pneumonia.
First time she went on vacation with us as a family of six.3
First time she played in the sand at a beach.
First time she surfed:).
First time she met one of her poppies.
First time she went swimming (and she LOVES it).
First time she slept away from her bed.
There are too many to list. All the more reason to adopt a toddler...so many firsts even when they come home at 2 1/2. The more time she is home the more we get to know this little girl. She is confident, she is loving, she is pretty easy going, she loves to sing and dance, she loves to swim, she loves to try new things. She is so much a part of who we are that we can't imagine what life would be like if we had not adopted.
I seem to have trouble uploading images... once figure it all out I will post pics. Meanwhile I will post on facebook.
