It was 6 months yesterday since we met Lucy. Today marks her official adoption 6 month anniversary. There is so much going on right now that my mom is the one who reminded me today!
If you had told me 6 months ago that we would be here, in this place emotionally where Lucy and I are finally forging a bond, I would have been hard pressed to believe you. But we are getting there. I don't seem to have the words (coherency and succinctness are not my strong points when I'm tired) right now to reflect on the past 6 months. I will try to save that for Lucy's Heart Letter in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I'll let some pictures do the talking.
Lucy and Kate meet for the first time
Lucy's first visit with Dr. Vicari and the cleft palate team at Children's (in October 2011). LOTS of crying.
That should be it until she is a teenager. At that point, another surgery will be done to correct her deviated septum and more nose surgery (if she wants it and if her nose needs it).
