On May 18, we celebrated our J's birthday!
What about this cake?! Thanks to volunteer "Kiwi Katrina" for making it!!
J is already four!! She has grown and changed so much since her September 1, 2010 arrival.
I admire all of the patient volunteers (Haley, Savannah, Iris...) and staff members who have poured their heart and soul into helping J come out of her shell. Through their hard work and dedication, they have taught J to love herself and life (she had many signs of Reactive Attachment Disorder those first months), to walk, to make her way around the house, to feed herself, to speak properly (she now has some real, very clear words)...the list goes on and on!
Feeling the heat of the candles...
