It boggles my mind to think that We were handed a 9 year old little munchkin. We were supposed to love her, care for her and call her our daughter.
You know what?
We did that. Yes it is 100% possible to fall in love with a 9 year old that often acted like a 2 year old on crack. Those first few weeks she touched every on off switch about 521 times each day, She was loud (still is), she was scared (still is at times)
By the Grace of God I think she knew that our family was her family. She has let me kiss her from week one and still plasters my face with kisses every night before bed. She is helpful, her English is AMAZING, she is reading, she loves school and home, she LOVES her people (family and friends)
Sometimes I think we should have named her JOY.

Now just look at my beautiful girl after a year of love.
