This week could not have ended any better. After a (somewhat quiet) day at work, I arrived home to this most wonderful packet at my door. Inside contained a very VERY important folder containing the official referral information on my girl.
It’s really nothing I didn’t already know. Some things made me cry. Her little life certainly did not have an easy start. I knew that she had arrived at the orphanage in a unfortunate way, but reading the details breaks my heart. I want so much to just take her in my arms and bring her into a life full of unconditional love and the care that she needs and deserves. Though I know there will be some work to overcome her start in life.
Some things in this binder AMAZED me. My girl amazes me. I can not wait until she is home and growing and learning. I just know she will keep amazing me everyday. One of the ‘requirements’ for the next item I need to complete (or should say needed to complete as it was sent via email to the agency this evening…lets keep on moving!!) is a sentence that describes a ‘positive aspect of the child as shown in the reports’. My amazing girl is one little (and I do mean little) ball full of positive aspects. I guess she is not one to let her start in life effect her outlook on life.
