She’s incredible

3 days home and we’re overwhelmed with joy with how well things are going. I don’t even understand how one child can have so much strength and good in her heart to be able to be transitioning like this. She’s remarkable and we certainly do not deserve to be parents to such an incredible child.

Yiyi is starting to figure out what she likes to do at home and where she likes to hang out at home. One of her absolute favorites is to put on my wedding veil and wedding dress petticoat and run around the house. Today it was just the veil, but it also required a dance party. Excuse the blurry photo, but when you are in a dance frenzy, you can’t stop to take a posed photo. And why would you want to?

Yiyi also found a love for the hula hoop today. She is very good at it! I was super impressed. And Yiyi was super disappointed that mommy didn’t have the gift of the hula hoop as well. Please enjoy this video for your viewing pleasure.

She’s really incredible. We’re going to her first doctors appointment tomorrow, which I’m sure will be met with much distain but perhaps an ice cream after can help soften the blow. We thank you for continued prayers and support! We are feeling so very loved.

  9. Niki, we did our Home Study through you at Children’s Hope back in 2004/5. We were blessed with Taegan Riley Yina George on May, 2006. I lost contact with you when Children’s Hope closed their KC office. A friend sent this to me. It is so good to see how your life has changed, married and a beautiful new daughter. We are so happy for you. Will send you pictures soon of our beautiful daughter you helped us get.
