The New Us

Pip update:
We've been home about 10 days and can we just say...We ADORE her!  Every one of us can't get enough.  Call it the honeymoon maybe, but I'll call it God's perfect fit in God's perfect time.  Although we are still keeping her world very small, and we are still employing all of the attachment strategies we have learned, her adjustment and transition has been nothing short of supernatural

 Her concept of family is strong and she showers "biiiiig" and "small" kisses. She is an animal lover, book lover and a foody.  She revels in her morning bath time and rough play with dad. 

Her giggle will melt your heart...and let me just tell you, this girl can crack herself up!

Here are some pictures of our spring shenanigans as a family of 5!

Are your attachment strategies from a book(s) or things you learned from previous adoptions? Glad you made it home and thanks for posting likes in our FB group. Krista

Meant to say links.

Krista, I read copius amounts before our first adoption. We needed to be very studious and proactive with our son and I was so glad I had taken the time. My favorites were: Toddler Adoption, Attachment in Adoption, The Connected Child, and How to Parent Your Internationally Adopted Child. All the best to you!

I'm so happy to see that everything went well. My husband and I are in the process of adopting from Thailand, too. Dear Ron and Kelly,
Thanks a lot for your updates! We are in the process of adoption in Thailand, too. We also need a psychiatric evaluation done. As we are not sure about the form we would be very happy if you could contact us.
With kind regards and all the best for you and your family! Your children are so gorgeous!

Oh, no, I must have pasted some parts. That was not my intention. I'm sorry! (I had asked a couple, who did the evaluation in Thailand, for some information as we are not sure about the form).
I just wanted to wish you and your family all the best. I enjoy following your blog and am so glad, that everything went well!
