We just heard that our "case" is being worked on, documents translated, and that we can expect to hear something soon. We're very hopeful, after a really long lull in which we'd decided that we wouldn't learn anything until we traveled again.
We celebrated her third birthday today -- Hello Kitty cake and pink mashed potatoes and strawberry Dippin' Dots -- and she blew out the candles and made a wish. I wish her extended first family knew what a beautiful, smart, funny, creative and independent little girl their baby has grown into. She would remind me to add "pretty" and "cute" to that list . . .
She is amazing, and they deserve to know it. And in whatever capacity possible, she deserves to know them.
