Tomorrow we leave for West Virginia!

Yep, I'm so excited.  It will be different though.  We'll be staying with at T&T's house.  Actually, it will feel weird!  I'm trying to see myself as my mom visiting me here in NC from NY.  Just plain weird!! 

Continuing to document our adoption of Little T here is another scrap book page of that first day.  We just finished signing some paperwork in our guides room and went back to the Victory hotel where we stayed at.  Little T was still so scared but she let me change her clothes and clean her up some.  She played with the stacking cups we brought her and would watch us with those big brown eyes of hers.  No expressions just staring with those eyes.  I wonder what she was thinking?  Who are these strange people?  Where is my Ayi?  When am I going back to my friends?  Breaks my heart to think about it!  In the evening I gave her a bottle and a bath and rocked her to sleep.  She had a little cry that wasn't even louder than a whisper.  Oh, I pray I never hear that cry again.  It was so sad and heart wrenching!!

Isn't it amazing how far they come in such a short time? Today is our One Year Gotcha Day and the difference is AMAZING!!! The things you are remembering now, I still remember and it's been a year...all the emotions, what you did on what day all that stuff. It's just simply amazing how those feelings stick with us. I think she is adjusting wonderfully and you are doing a wonderful job!! I look here everyday to see updates, so thanks for putting them up! Have a wonderful time on your trip...take lots of pics bc your little grand-daughter will grow up b4 u know it too!! Be safe and happy travels!!!
