Three Months Home
We've been home for three months. It's really starting to feel more "normal" each day. S. is getting more, and more English everyday, and this is helping with everything. I've asked her several times if she wants to keep her Hindi, and she says no every time. I've asked her if she wants a Hindi teacher, she says no. Anyway, I've asked her several different ways, the answer is always the same. It's kind of good since I don't have the money for a Hindi tutor anyway. LOL. Paying back all of those adoption loans is a tall order. It's financially stressful. It's more than well worth it, of course, but it is still financially stressful. My girls. Let's see. E. was having a hard time, a lot of tears. I took her on a big girl date. She wanted ice cream, and to walk around the mall. It was so fun, and so weird for it to be just her and I. It used to be our life, and now it's a special thing, strange. She has been less teary this week, after the alone time with Mom. I don't know how she'll feel when it is S.'s turn, but we shall see. S. seems to be giving more real hugs, and has more comfort. I can tell she really relaxes on my lap, and rests easy in my arms now. It's wonderful. Oh, we still have a long way to go, but we are getting there, and the journey is to be treasured.
