Oh My Heavens!!!!!

I can't get enough of this girl! She is no push over - she knows what she wants, how she wants it, where, when AND how. AND you better make it snappy! She is IN charge and makes no bones about telling everyone around her that little fact. She had the guts to tell our waitress at dinner tonight that we were coming back tomorrow, "bye bye, ayi!" (bye auntie!) she called as we were walking out the door! She told a shopkeeper that she wants to buy high heels. Uh, excuse me, girlfriend - HOW old are you????
Not a single tear was shed - she came right into my arms and gave me a hug. Her little hands are everywhere - exploring - taking it all in.
She loved her bath, settled into bed and is sleeping peacefully. Since Heidi and I have been up since 4AM, we are now headed to bed, too.

We also had the privilege of meeting up with Shonni, of Nations Around My Table (I hope that is right!) and Jean, of There's No Place Like Home, and parts of their families at Lucy's this afternoon. What a small world!

Thanks for all of your continued prayers, I KNOW that that made a huge impact on all that has led up to this day, this day, and our future. THANK YOU - THANK YOU, GOD, for this awesome blessing that YOU have allowed us.
