In Just A Few Short Weeks

Wow! In just a few weeks, it will mark our Six month mile stone. The last six months have been an amazing journey with the addition of a daughter to our family. Six months ago I was so ,worried that Noah and Caleb were not going to adjust to having a sister in their lives, because they were not sure themselves. Today, my greatest joy is watching the three of them together. Hannah adores her brothers and if it's possible, I think they love her even more. Since coming home, we have seen cardiology, ENT, cranial facial, dental and speech specialist and have had two surgeries. The first surgery was fairly minor with ear tubes put in and some dental work done. The second surgery was a revision on her palate. This too should have been pretty straight forward, but it actually landed us in the ICU for 24 hours (boy are we are so glad that is over). This week Hannah will begin speech therapy.

Despite the whirlwind of doctors, Hannah has adjusted amazingly well. She completely understands everything we say and she is saying new words everyday. She is such a people person and loves everyone. She loves to give hugs and kisses. It is evident that this kid was loved in China. We will be forever greatful to her foster family and we feel so blessed that she is now a part of our family.
