Last post before we head back home tonight! We are ready to get home and start healing. Ti cried herself to sleep the first night, not the second night, but again last night. It is heartbreaking. Her pain is so clear and so strong. i cant even imgaine. She is spitfire though and many of her charicteristics are the same the girl we fostered for so long so i think we can make headway. There is jus tno way around the pain. She has to go through it unfortunetly. She is happy and giggly most of the time, hates to here the word no but loves to shout it, has the biggest smile I have ever seen, and is so smart. She can say, write and pickout of order the entire English alphabete. She can also count to 20 in English, and make pronunciations for words like C ca ca cat. It is very good. We here new words everyday a nd like Landon she has the need to communicate. Today she practiced on her own "Come here Landon, Come here Daddy, Come here mommy" It was so cute. In English she can say...Thank You, come here, goodbye, hello, Landon, uh oh, NO, yes or no?, wow, cool, laptop, computer, CD, and a few other things slipping my mind. So kids are getting up! Gotta run but hopeful will post more from home. Thanks for all the support. I'll post pics once we are home an can get a good enough connection :) I forgot to say that she can also say and spell her name as Liberti. I am not sure if she can write it yet but she can write several other English words already!
