Then it was my turn, I too had everyone giving input as to what colors to use. Every blue was considered for the perfect sky. Some teacher touch ups on the crashing waves and I had an identifiable ocean scene.
Then it was Jeromy's turn. I tried to make it hard on him and jokingly showed him a challenging picture to copy, but with
a lot a little help from the teacher, they got all the perfect details added to make a beautiful mountain scene.
We finished off our little painting party with a bag of candy and some English practice.
We have had a wonderful mix of time alone with "Our Girl", and time getting to know her in her world.
It is so nice to be alone and just get to know each other, but we also learn so much about her seeing the interactions with her classmates. She seems to have very loving and caring friends, teachers and caregivers. Everyone has been so welcoming to us, loving on our girl and very willing to let use part of their lives.
We have seen our girl really working hard to connect with us.
She asked about our hobbies. I told her I like to garden. Later out on a little walk she stopped, said Stacy and pointed out the garden.
She knows Jeromy likes to run and now whenever we stroll the long hallway she turns it into a race. I tell you what that girl can really move in that chair. I have to jog to keep up with her.
We are seeing more and more how God is knitting our family together. We always knew she was a perfect fit with our family but the more we talk about the future the more it seems she is the missing piece.
We can't wait to have all the pieces together.
