I feel like I kind of left the story of our adoption journey unended. As most of you know, we made it home safely. The trip home took about 24 hours, 3 planes later and a short ride home from the airport, we were home. We were welcomed home at the airport by good friends and family-LOVE! Mia did great on the trip and at the airport. She loves the dogs, she actually gave her first kisses to the dogs and of course they are loving another little one who shares all of her food with them. We are figuring out the best sleeping arrangements. I think we are good for now. I took the bunk bed down so they are two single beds and then there is one more twin bed in the room. Tylar offered to give Lily her room, but Lily said she still wanted to share a room with Cali & Mia.
We visited the UNC cleft clinic. Mia is scheduled to have her surgery on September 19th. She has has also seen the pediatrician, to whom she was not very happy with. She definitely knew who a doctor is. She cried for about an hour, all he did was take out his stethoscope . That was enough for her. Poor kid. Never know what their previous experiences were before coming home. When we went to UNC, she was seen by about 6 different doctors. One came in wearing a, white coat, she started tearing up and he immediately took off his coat, and all was good!She is a happy affectionate child. There are times when she gets a bit sad (mostly at bed time or when first waking up) but she is easily consoled. She is my little buddy.
She loves rice, noodles, fish, shrimp, warm milk, all kinds of soup, pasta, crackers, gold fish. No sweets, no ice-cream .
