Getting used to being in her new home

It is so exciting for me to see Amanda come alive before my eyes, I know that there is much to be learned about her, but lately, she has come to me to be held and tickled. She has begun to trust me enough to lie back and be held like and infant, at first she would peer up at me with a furrowed brow, and now she smiles up at me with a twinkle in her eyes. What a privilege to see this transformation in her.
She is beginning to show emerging skills in playing and spends all day saying mama ma and Dada, also bababa.
She spends less time with self stim behaviors and more time wanting attention and love. PTL for this, I have been so worried about how shut down she was. She still does have issues, it takes a lot to get her to come out of her stupor and play, but each time it takes less time.
Her giggle is musical and always brings Kara and Meghan to our sides, Meghan adores Amanda.
Can you say hallelujah with me?
The word for today is HOPE.

Hi Kris, I just love your Estonian princess. I'm glad she is coming out of her shell. God put her in the perfect family to meet her needs. It is wonderful to see the transformation in her pictures. I'll keep praying.
