Progress!!

Ok, I have toilets getting ready to walk out if I don't clean them soon, never-ending laundry needing to be rotated, and floors that needed to be mopped two weeks ago. SO, I gotta make this quick...but I had to tell you that we had a bit of progress today at dance class!! Take a look.....


Ok, so far it's business as usual...

THEN...Miss Courtney brought out this back-bend teaching mat thingy....And Lucy came alive! Here she is looking to the side at an older girl showing her how to do a back bend...she was VERY intrigued and willing to learn!!

Horray for Lucy!!!! Whew. With only 3 classes left we are finally seeing her come out of her shell! I know some of you have suggested that I just leave her there & that she would be just fine. I do occasionally go to the back room and watch through the window, but there's no way I'm about to undo 8 months of building attachment by leaving her in a situation where she isn't comfortable. We do leave her in children's church on Sundays and she does just find without me because she loves my friends Angela & Cathy who are with her. These things just take a little extra time with newly adopted kiddos.

And lastly, Happy Presidents' Day! I hate it. I mean, I'm good with honoring our great presidents of the past but NOBODY'S WORKING ON MY ADOPTION!!! So, tomorrow I will be eagerly waiting for the mail in hopes that my case number from immigration is there!!! Please pray!!!

I know exactly what you mean- we had to make it through memorial day , 4th of july and labor day- let's just keep working right through the holidays to get these kids home!

Yeah Lucy! You go girl!

PS -I see no reason to pout in Florida BUT I may be biased!

Lucy looks great. That smile on her face when she came off of the dance floor was priceless. Hopefully each week will get better and better.
