Five months ago today, we brought Grace home from Ethiopia. She is so amazing to me. I know I write about it all the time, but I can't help but think of how resilient she has been. I know that if you took me to a strange land and said "this is your new home" and introduced me to a bunch of new people, fed me strange food, introduced me to a totally different climate (complete with cold air and snow), and then expected me to be happy...it would never work. This is a picture of Grace on the day we met her. Take a look at her face. She was very quiet, shy, and serious. She opened up to us within a short time, and we had a wonderful trip together in Ethiopia, but NOTHING compares to what our little Grace is like NOW. Take a look at this picture...it is like she is a different child. She has such a fun personality. She is so willing to try new things, enjoys her new surroundings and shares a smile with everyone she meets.
