We are lucky enough to have 2 lovely little girls and many of you will know we have not had an easy ride.
Adoption is a long and complex process and we have to deal with a lot of things that we are not really qualified for, but, for the last 4 years I think we have managed really well.
This Lady C , I love her little sweet face, I often stare at her to try to understand how she feels as she is so very troubled, I try hard to help her but there are so many things I don't understand, how could I after all? who can really appreciate what she has been through? apart from her and her sister..
I do get stressed and frustrated and sometimes embarrassed as she is a bit like a box of chocolates....you never know what you are going to get...how she will behave , whats she will do or say next.
Christmas time is 'different' for us, children who have had very little find it hard to cope with it. So when I asked 'Lady C' what she would like for Christmas she only wanted 1 thing.......her tooth...we have waited and waited for months and months and months for it, she didn't want anything else.
Can you imagine the joy on her face when she woke up on Christmas morning with her missing tooth popping through, a little tear rolled down my cheek...her wish came true..
