Right after arriving at the hotel

6 MONTHS AGO TODAY AT 10:45 A.M. (CHINA TIME)
I can not believe that 6 months has gone by already. The changes in Talicee are remarkable. In the first picture, she will do nothing by sit on our laps. She still has on the outfit that the orphanage put on her. I do see a little happiness in her. Notice her hair. They really cut it up. I had not noticed this until I started looking back on pictures.
The second picture was taking a few days ago. She is sitting in one of her brother's chair he got for Christmas. She is sitting alone and seems very happy. Notice her hair. It is long and her bangs are cut even.
It sends chills down my spine and tears to my eyes to see what changes have occurred. I remember the very minute that she was placed in my arms. It went so fast. I remember the screams and the look in her eyes. She was determined that she was not going to stay with us. What an emotional hour. I will never forget that time. Just like I will never forget seeing my boys for the first time. A memory I will cherish forever.
There are no words to describe the feelings of this wonderful day.
Thank you God for allowing us to raise this precious little girl and her big brothers.
JOURNEY TO ME HAS BEEN UPDATED

Talicee has really changed. And you can see the bright sparkler in her eye has gotten brighter!

Happy 6 months!! Talicee is so adorable. It's hard to believe how much these little girls change before our eyes. So happy for you, Talicee and your family.

Happy 6 months together. Talicee really has changed/blossomed into a happy little girl. Perhaps it's all that spoiling from her older brothers.. :-)
