Happy Birthday, Sonya!

Sonya turned nine years old today!  "Happy Birthday, sweet Sonya!" 

The next few pictures are of the girls all wound up on sugar and acting VERY silly.

Yes, it has been a long while since i posted.  Words are few and far between for me these days.  This past five months has been a loooong haul for my whole family, people.  Whew!  And the language barrier is the very crux of the ensuing dilemma we find ourselves in DAILY.  BUT... Things are slowly improving.   

Cassie will be attending a speech camp for six weeks this summer, so help is on the way.  And she is also in physical therapy to increase her gross motor skills.  Imagine if you will a seven year old who never had the opportunity to develop physically until her heart cath in January of this year!  Now also imagine that due to this seven year old child's physical condition she was placed with younger children, having never attended school and having noone in her life who ever expected anything of her AT ALL.  Until now that is... Because one cannot function in a family otherwise.  BUT... It's an issue of stunted emotional development that hopefully some day we will be able to close the gap on, but for now, I am one tired momma.  With very little to say...  Hence the long delay in posting.  

Now just a few random pics of Cassie doing her thing, and that is, developing into the girl God intended her to be all along.  I hope you enjoy!

Until Next time!
