Kinley Grace

I admit I've failed to give regular updates on Kinley's progress - sorry! As you may recall from our adoption site, she was less than pleased when handed to her new parents. I'm happy to say she thinks we're the bomb now! I mean, we totally rock in her eyes. Okay, you get the idea.

Kinley's reported medical need was cleft lip, repaired. However, her hard palate is cleft, and she has some speech issues. We have our first consult in March.

She repeats much of what we say and understands everything! I'm seriously amazed when I say, "Take your shirt to the hamper," and she does it!

This week she's started singing songs from Veggie Tales and nursery rhymes She's 34 inches tall and weighs all of 26 pounds.

As long as she gets a nap, snack and three squares she's one happy camper. She's become incredibly social and confident. Now that is amazing! She seems ready for potty training...but the mom, not so much.

How blessed I am!

I probably would have some really cute pictures of her from this weekend if my awesome friends with those cool cameras send me some - lol!

What a joy that she is adjusting so well! How old was she when you adopted her? Our little girl just turned 4 and we are so ready to meet her. I am praying for a smooth adjustment phase for her as well! Suzette
