Mommmy's have got to love this one...
What more can I say. Cali continues to amaze us. She says bye-bye and waves. She says mei-mei, xia-xia She eats like crazy. She must have gained at least a pound. So far Lily has gotten the real kisses. I found a plastic toy duck for sale that I saw in the play room at the orphanage so I bought one. If you can believe it was $7 US dollars. It is plastic and not what would I have normally bought but Cali really remembered it when I gave it to her. Although she was in foster care, she was brought back to the orphanage for "school" everyday. I was kind of skeptical when they told me that until I actually went and saw it for myself. They gave me things that Cali had made, what a priceless treasure! Visit to the orphanage $600 round trip, Cali's treasures-priceless! The program is sponsored by Future Hope. I will try to contact them when we get back to the states. I really feel like we made some incredible contacts and we got to say thank you to them. Again, priceless!
