O M G

Life is busy...
We are home and having fun, but busy every minute of the day. She loves all her new toys and is very good at playing. She will be happy playing all day long...
So far, she has been mine for 11 days. We have done a ton of things in that time. She enjoyed the plane ride home... but Mommy spilled her pediasure all over the plane. oops.
Getting her gobs of things home in the van was a challenge, but we made it. I immediately got a migraine as we drove home and collapsed on the floor with my little girl at home. She played as I recovered... nice welcome home, huh?
In addition, supplies were delivered. A million supplies - trach kits, humidifier, tubing, sterile water, suction catheters, oxygen, saline, nebulizer kits, HME devices, probably more that I can't think of...
The next day ten UPS boxes arrived from her adoption agency. This kid has more stuff than god! Toys, stuffed animals, supplies, clothes, pediasure, bath chair, more supplies, day braces, night braces, etc.
THEN... We left town for the holiday! (Yes, go ahead and say that I am crazy.) She was a great kid through everything... happy and social! She loved it and we bonded nicely even though we were constanly in new places and meeting new people.

She is beautiful and so loved. I am so happy for you two.

I am so happy that you two found each other!

Congratulations! I hope you have everything you need now. I remember packing and traveling with all of that stuff too. We still did it and enjoyed being with our family instead of stuck at home. Good for you!

That is a lot of stuff! Travelling with these little ones is hard work, but look at the smile on her face. So worth it! :)

Congratulations!!I am very happy for you! I am preparing to adopt myself and just found your blog through Yaya's site. Your story brings tears to my eyes and I can't wait until my little one is home too. Blessings!!

congrats, she is beautiful.

Thanks for visiting our blog, I will certainly be looking into the communication devices you mentioned. Our biggest issue is a school district and AT person who want to provide nothing because Junior is on home instruction.
