Here is the cake that D. and TM made. It says "Happy 12th Birthday" and has a butterfly.
This was a kit to make pom-pom dogs. I think she liked it.
I think you can see that we are seeing her personality is blooming. I don't claim to have any special abilities, but feeling safe and loved and challenged (in a good way) is good for a child. Institutional care, no matter how good, can never provide the same level of safety and love that being in a healthy family can. Remember these two girls?
Tina - If you go to the Twenty Less site, there are several new videos of Tina. Please go and look at them.
Every child deserves a family. Every child deserves to be loved. Could you provide that love and safety for a child? For one of these children? They wait and wait and wait. I know Grace has been waiting for years because we met her when we brought H. home. I believe Tina has been waiting just as long. No one has chosen them. These children won't just be referred to a family, they will wait until they are chosen.
