Ever since these precious girls of yours have come into my care, I find I can’t stop thinking about you.
I wonder about your story.
What hand life has dealt you.
What choice you have made from those dealings.
I wanted to share a few things with you, even though I know we may never even meet.
I wanted to tell you some things about your girls you may not know.
Sweet “caro” is a fire cracker. Her has such a strong resilient heart. Her life has been upheaval after upheaval, and yet she still manages to laugh and make others laugh around her. She’s a caretaker. She loves to watch over “Grace” and loves, loves, loves her baby.
She is smart. Very smart. And her hearing is impeccable. (Unless of course she is choosing not to hear you, lol). She speaks so well and her comprehension is amazing.
She also is stubborn and a tad headstrong. Those can be good qualities as she will more than likely need them later on.
She loves to sing. All the time. She also loves to make up stories, about anything really. Her imagination cracks me up.
I love being able to watch her be a little girl. Watch her play with toys and watch her skip and dance. And sing the putter fly song or the songs we sing before bed.
She is a bit of a picky eater and I believe it’s her way of trying to control the situation. One moment she loves it, the next it’s the worst food ever.
She decided shortly after coming to live with us that she wasn’t going to nap any longer and since then I believe she has only had about 4 naps.
We are talking play school and maybe gymnastics or dance in the fall. She begs to go to school with Sarah. So I think she is ready for more interaction.
She loves the water. Like crazy loves the water. Doesn’t mind playing in the sand either, but would way sooner be out swimming.
I’d be crazy not to mention those toes. Oh man those toes that she can spread out like fingers, and does, ALL THE TIME! I swear she could eat with those toes.
Your little Grace.
Oh man stubborn doesn’t begin the describe that girl. It’s her way or the highway, which you can imagine causes some grief between her and Caro.
She will eat almost anything. Her chubby cheeks show her love for food.
Oh how she loves her big sister. And her baby as well. I love watching her “mother” her dolly.
Although she is stubborn, she is also very sensitive. Her temper tantrums include crying instead if screaming.
She is starting to put words together and in fact said her first sentence the other day.
She has a love/hate relationship with our dog. She is never sure is she wants to hug and kiss her or scream because the dog walked by her.
She HATES the sand. We have to either place her directly in the water or out a towel down with a pail of water for her to play in.
She has the best bed head EVER!!!
Some of her words right now are of thankum, pwease, done, wawa, and elp.
She’s going to be tall as she is almost 3 feet already and won’t be two for a month and a half.
She loves shoes. Like loves loves loves shoes.
She still likes her sleep and is great about going to bed for nap time.
She is very shy and withdrawn and it takes her a very long time to come out of her shell. But once she does, her smile is amazing.
Everyone comments in her gorgeous brown eyes and her adorable chubby cheeks.
Oh my sweet Drey.
What a cutie poototie. Everyone is falling for her.
She has crazy long fingers, like longer than the palm of her hand long.
And those toes, just like her big big sister.
She also has Grace’s chubby cheeks.
She is a very happy baby and loves to held. ALL THE TIME. Lol
She is eating really good and enjoying the milk that you gave her.
Her sisters adore her to bits and always want to kiss her and touch her and hold her. If anyone asks Caro, she says she’s my baby, mine and Graces.
She is definitely the center right now.
Most of all, I want to say thank you. Thank you for choosing life to these miraculous girls. Thank you for not ending their lives before they had begun.
I’m am beyond humbled to be a part of their life’s. They fill me up, in a way I didn’t even know was empty.
I laugh at Caro’s singing and crack myself up over Grace’s dance moves and are mesmerized my Drey’s eyes.
Like I said I don’t know your story. But hopefully you know more about our girls now.
Know, that they are very much loved.
Know, that they are very much cared for.
Know, they are a part of our family forever now, no matter what happens.
Know, so are you.
