Eleven years old

Posted in Uncategorized on May 12, 2010 by heart4kids

Today Karina turns eleven years old.  This little girl has been through a lot of dramatic changes in her short life!  She continues to spread cheer and goodwill everywhere she goes.  We are blessed to have her in our family! It’s amazing how one little person can have such a huge influence on so many people, but Karina is responsible for saving her sisters and changing our whole family for the better.

It has now been 15 months since the girls arrived in our home.  It’s getting hard to remember now what our life was like without them.  We still have a big job ahead of us as we continue to discover how much they don’t know about life.  It seems like many of the common sense lessons we learned as kids that we take for granted, they still haven’t learned yet.  Melissa is showing a wonderful amount of patience as she mentors them. They generally have a positive, appreciative attitude and contribute a lot to the family. I know that the time and energy we invest in these girls is well spent.

All my favorite girls
