Today I saw Kellsey's groupa, and I thought about her, about her last couple of days with a family! My heart broke her the other children,and I held Nina a little closer to me. The realization of her new life struck me today, it slapped me on the face. I want Nina out of there ASAP!
I can't WAIT until Nina is home too!!!!
oh no what did kellsey get into that her face broke out in the last pic.
We don't know... we're trying to make it go away. It's a trial and error process at this point.
Pretty much everything is new for her, right? Give her time! Her poor tummy has a lot of adjusting to do! Did they say anything about watching her diet for a while?
Nope... we know nothing about what she ate there unfortunately. Our translator was sick the day Kellsey left her baby home so Frank wasn't able to ask any questions.
Renee do you have a glass door as well as a wood door? Looks like there is a reflection behind Kellsey
Yes, we have a glass storm door and then our actual front door is metal... which is odd, but the kids love it because they can put magnets on it! LOL
Does Frank report for work on Monday? I just can't imagine all the transitions ahead for you all.
Frank is off until Friday :o).
I'm always kind of curious about this when I hear about adoptions, so I'll just go ahead and ask.. are you planning to ever tell Kellsey that she was adopted?
Yes, when she's older we will tell her her story and show her pictures from Ukraine. We see no point in keeping it a secret, there's no shame in being adopted, and I'm sure Kass and Kam will tell her all about it anyway! :)
We are praying for a little one to find her forever family, but I don't think adoption is for us - did you ever feel this way?
At first, yes, I felt like there was NO way we could handle another child, but we prayed about it a lot and God clearly spoke to our hearts. That being said, adoption is not for everyone, but there are SO many ways you can help! You can read my post here about that.
How is she doing with the kids at school today?
Today went well! Kellsey and Keeghan had a lot of fun playing together! :)
They are so cute together! Do you have moderately matching outfits for all three girls?
LOL Not really... the outfits they had on this morning were actually both Kennedy's. She has 3 of the same outfit in different colors. I haven't really bought Kellsey ANY clothes yet except for the outfit she's going to wear for our family pictures... and Kassidy's will coordinate then :).
Do you have her in a crib or a bed? She probably learned early on that crying doesn't do much good. Jet lag and a new house though definitely makes it difficult too I'm sure. So are you getting Keeghan and Kellsey on the same nap time? Or trying to at least. Are you still pinching yourself making sure this is all real? Everytime I see you post I just can't believe it's real ;).
She is in a toddler bed. And yes they are on the same nap time which is nice! Still can't believe she's actually here!!! It's awesome! Even if I AM tired! LOL
Don't you wonder what's going on inside her sweet little head, what she's thinking? Although I imagine it's something along the lines of "I am the luckiest girl in the world!!!"
LOL Either that or, "These people are ALL nuts! They don't even speak my language!" hahaha
How is Frank doing? I bet he is glad to be back home. He was gone a long time!!
Yes he is very glad to be home! He spent the day catching up on his TV shows :).
Has Kellsey started saying any english words yet?
Only "bye bye", but she's understanding more and more, which is good! We're using lots of visual cues along with our words, so that's helping, I'm sure.
