How is she adjusting?

She's still washing her hands and playing in the water a lot!
She's eating and eating. Her malnourished tummy, whuch was very round, is diminishing. Although she eats well, her manners are surprisingly good! It's sweet to see her enjoy her food. I'm so grateful to be able to give it to her!
I was a little skeptical about tacos, but she loved them! She gathered the filling that had fallen out in her hand and ate it too...Ethiopian style (those of you who have seen how they eat injera understand what I'm saying!).
Shepherd seems to enjoy Mihret so much! He asks for her when he wakes and looks for her when she's not in the same room.
...such an engaging Dad, building puzzles with them. Mihret likes Papa (where did THAT come from?) and Rachel best out of all of us.

Lisa, things have been busy here, but I have been thinking of you guys constantly for the last month. I finally got a chance to catch up on the blog. I am so thrilled for you!! I do hope we can meet again some day.

Lisa,
We are an active duty family as well (Navy) living in Virginia. How wonderful to see another family moved by God in such a big way! We adopted our daughter from Thailand and after being home for 2 1/2 years she is STILL fascinated with running water. It takes a year for her to wash her hands!!
Many blessings and congratulations on your new addition!

Lisa, it is such a blessing to be able to follow your adoption story. My heart swells with love for Mirhet and I haven't even met her! Thank you for sharing her and your journey with us. Wish you all peace and joy unsurpassed.
