Meeting her big brother Johnathan for the first time!
With her sister Emilea
Best of Buds with her brother Ethan!
At the aquarium...what a fun day!
Our first glimpse of her!!!!! Look how *tiny* she was.......WOW!!!!!!

2nd Forever Family Day!!

Kaylea has been with us for 2 years now! She is from

Bangkok, Thailand (originally Songkhla)!!

She is now 7.5 years old and in 1st grade. She is doing great, too!

She is on grade level, which is amazing for a child who has only been

imersed in English for 2 years. We are thrilled that she is now our

little girl and a part of our family.

Happy Leap Day!!

February is almost OVER??!!??!! How did that happen so quickly??
So, tomorrow is Kaylea's 2nd Forever Family Day!!
Can you believe THAT??
Emilea and I are working on a project for her. I'm trying to be a more
organized and to be a more together mom, like I use to be.
Back before I had a gaggle of kids!!
I'll post pictures later.......

This is what you get when you ask "who's going with Mama?!"  The hands shoot up!!!

I just love Rubea's therapists! They are all so good to her. We had her developmental therapist and speech therapist here today. She is so quiet when they are here, but usually very cooperative. She just loves that they play with her and give her all their attention! She has come so far in such a short time. I am amazed every day that we were chosen to be her family!
