Last night, Lauren and I sat on my bed and we were looking at photos on my laptop. They were photos from all her foster care reports. She LOVED looking at them. And was pointing things out to me. Telling me about her Di-Di (little brother) and her friend Ha Ha (this is how she says her little friends name). Showing me her Nai Nai (grandma) with love in her eyes. Telling me that she and her Nai Nai had shoes on. The showed me the sink outside where they washed up. And the moped and bicycle they rode on together.
It was a sweet time last night. There were no tears from Lauren, just pride and excitement and joy. I am constantly astounded by this little ones resiliency and strength. I just love this little girl.
