Four Years Home

Today, well, technically yesterday, marked the four year anniversary of Blossom joining our family. Tiny for her age, scared; I remember every detail of what it was like from the moment I first saw her in her pretty turquoise dress to the hamburger she ate at lunch, to watching her play with Jie Jie, and all the other little things that happened that first day.

She talks a mile a minute and is very out-going, doesn't know a stranger. She's pleased to have learned her multiplication tables over the summer. Her journey has been long and hard and continues to be pretty hard as she struggles to learn and find her place in this world, but she's easy to please and make happy.

She has "blossomed" with you as her mother. Congratulations to you both!

I happened to catch your blog for the first time today. So many challenges.
Language problem or cognitive problem? Was there any experience in requesting a Chinese-speaking educator to examine the cognitive development of the older kids in their native language?
