Adoption Photo: Gracyn turns 4!
2 plus 2, equals FOUR! She came home at 2, she’s been home for 2 years, and WOW, is she really already FOUR? A significant milestone to celebrate. What they say about the time spent apart, and the time spent with their forever family, certainly held true for ours. We needed every bit of the two years to bond, and I most definitely see the changes. I was heartbroken back in 2008 when I found out I’d be hopping on a plane 2 days AFTER her 2nd birthday, but in retrospect, it was so much better for her celebrate her special day with the foster family who cared for her for her entire life. I’m no longer a stranger, I’m her Mommy, and celebrating her 4th Birthday was truly about her, not the day we met, or the day she stepped onto US Soil. We no longer really count the days she’s been home. It feels like she’s always been a part of our family.
