She was terrified of the dog when she first came home but he is now her new best friend! He happens to be enjoying some quiet time right now laying beside me on the floor while Mark is outside with the girls in the pool.
I am exhausted every night when I fall into bed but I'm beginning to feel more confident in my ability to love her through her fears and her challenging tests of my love. I pray every night for patience and I know those prayers are answered. She's home!! God knew from the start that she was our daughter and she's here with us now where she belongs. She is an absolute ball of fire when it comes to energy. She has a smile that will melt your heart and a laugh that is contagious! She loves to sing and she really loves to dance and bath time is generally her favorite time of the day. She has a baby doll that she cares for like a little mommy and she loves taking pictures of anything and everything!
She is home!! There are times when I look at her and I still can't believe it but it's true! Thank God, she's home!!
Nola with her baby Lulu!
Bath time........all smiles!
So sorry the pool days are soon coming to an end because we dearly love them!
